The Blue Lotus School of Mindfulness

The Blue Lotus School of Mindfulness As a part of the Dragonfly Sangha, BLSM trains and ordains ministers to serve the Sangha as clergy. A training school for the Mindfulness Arts


Our practice at the end of the year is based upon three Japanese Buddhist observations. The first is Bonenkai which is celebratory and where we consciously vow to “forget the year” or consciously let go of any negativity from the previous year. The second is Joya no Kane, where we ring a bell or bells 108 times together, to purify all negative karma and start the new year afresh. The third is to hang a Kadomatsu (our simpler, humble version -pine and green bamboo-pictured here) on the front door which represents wishes for longevity, prosperity, and steadfastness. Happy New Year to all from The Dragonfly Sangha!


Dear Friends,

As we enter the blessed Satori Season, we will celebrate the 24th annual ‘Feast of Enlightenment’ on Monday, December 18th 6:30pm at the place: Mt. Calvary Episcopal Church, 125 N 25th St, Camp Hill, PA 17011.

I will offer a special Satori Sermon on “What Does It Mean to Live Out of Enlightenment?”

We will observe our beautiful candlelight ceremony and carol chanting.

Afterwards, we will fellowship together and share the Big Buddha (Hotei) Cookie!

I look forward to being with all of you.

Love, Sensei
