Tea Ceremony, Postponed due to death in family, will announce new date soon
On Wednesday, March 28th, 2012 you are invited to join Cloud Floating Free Sangha in celebrating the drinking of tea together.
This will be a tea ceremony as is practiced in the tradition of Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.
At 6:30 PM we will begin with a 12 minute silent sitting meditation. After which we will prepare and enjoy tea and cookies in a formal practice of serving and consuming them with mindfulness.
After a 10-20 minute period of silent drinking and eating, we will begin sharing. Bringing poems, songs, instruments, stories, photos and whatever feels appropriate to the practice of mindfulness is encouraged. We will be watering the seeds of joy on this special evening.
We will close at 8:30 PM
Please note that this is our normal time for sangha and the tea ceremony will take the place of our normal schedule of sitting, walking and dharma sharing.
This cup of tea in my two hands,
mindfulness held perfectly.
My mind and body dwell
in the very here and now.
May we have peace and happiness in this very moment,
