Subject: [oioregon] Formal Ceremony to transmit the 5MT/Feb. 13
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
(Please share with your local Sanghas)
Please join the River Sangha for a formal recitation and transmission of the Five Mindfulness Trainings on Feb. 13th at the Friends Meeting House (previously scheduled and iced out on Dec. 12) between 9:00-11:30 a.m. This is a continuation of our monthly reading of the trainings, which we have been doing for over five years. As preciously announced, individuals will have the opportunity to formally receive the trainings which is making a commitment to practice with the support of the sangha to aspire and live according to the trainings. If you know of anyone who is interested, please have him or her contact me before Feb. 9th so an application can be completed. As you may recall, we had seven people prepared to receive the trainings this past Dec. and then came a winter canceling storm.
This offers us all a wonderful opportunity to either receive the trainings formally or support our Sangha friends who are making this commitment to practice mindfulness in their daily life.
This day is the eve of Tet (Vietnamese New Year) and with the time difference they will already be celebrating the New Year as our ceremony progresses. The ceremony will end at approximately 10:30 and please join us for some tea and Vietnamese cookies to celebrate the New Year with the ordinees and Sangha friends.
With loving regards and gratitude,
True Great Response
Address for Ceremony:
