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.

 

In an annual tradition, Bill Ellzey will be presenting a selection of his beautiful images at SII’s January monthly sampai.  This year, Bill is choosing 3 of his seminal images to share with us and tell us how the images came into being.

 

After the sampai a healthy buffet luncheon with Natural Agriculture, local and organic ingredients will be served. The luncheon is by donation. We hope many of you can join us this Sunday.
