We begin the sampai introduction at 10:30 with the formal sampai ceremony beginning at precisely 11:00 AM.  Please arrive at least 10 minutes early for the sampai.  At that time Sensei Alan Imai will lead us in chanting the Amatsunorito and Zengensanji after which he will share the healing light of Jyorei with all those present.  Following Jyorei Sensei Alan Imai will share a presentation about Shumei’s activities and the teachings of our founder Meishusama.  After the sampai a healthy buffet luncheon with Natural Agriculture, local and organic ingredients will be served. The luncheon is by donation.


Shumei is happy to be offering a short,free concert at the end of the lunch time. The Lipke-Johnson Duo is a classical music collaboration between Miriam Lipke, clarinet, and Emily Johnson, flute. When the double-instrument musicians first came together, they knew instantly that they would be able to create music and perform at a high caliber and they are looking forward to sharing their gift of music with you.  The program will include pieces and arrangements from composers old and new. Selections will include ariettas and airs from Bach to a tango by modern composer Jose L. Elizondo and everything in between.


We hope many of you can join us this Sunday.


Please also note other offering we have coming up at Shumei in Crestone. We have an introductory class on either the 11thor the 17thof December. For more information and to register visit here: http://www.shumeicrestone.org/blog/healing-light-class.html
