Still Water Tea Celebrating Scott Schang, the Still Water Community, and the Plum Village Tradition.
Sun, July 15
Sun, July 15, 2:00 pm– 4:00 pm
Please join the Still Water community on Sunday afternoon, July 15th, 2:00 - 4:00 pm, for a tea ceremony celebrating Scott Schang, the Still Water community, and the Plum Village tradition.
Scott will receive Lamp Transmission and become a Dharma teacher at Plum Village during the June retreat. During the Transmission ceremony, Scott will offer an insight poem to the patriarchs and matriarchs of our lineage. This poem will be formally accepted, and a four-line poem, identifying spiritual qualities to be cultivated, will be offered in return. After the exchange of poetry, a lamp will be given in the name of the lineage and of Thich Nhat Hanh, passing the flame from one generation of teachers to the next. It is a special moment for the Still Water and regional Plum Village communities as well as Scott.
We will gather at Crossings in Silver Spring at 2 pm. After a short sitting, we will enjoy some tea and treats, ask Scott to tell us about the ceremony and its significance for him, and share reflections and good wishes.
You are invited to join us.
Please register ahead of time so we know how roughly how many people to prepare for.
