Red Clay Sangha Teachers
In the Maha-Parinirvana Sutra, when the Buddha is about to pass from the world, Ananda is concerned about his lack of a teacher in the future. The Buddha instructs Ananda that when he is gone, Ananda and his fellow monks, nuns, laymen and laywomen are to be lamps unto themselves and to take refuge unto themselves.
Our true teacher is always just underneath us -- our cushion; and our refuge is always around us -- our Sangha.
The Red Clay Sangha is young (founded May 2011) and has not chosen a resident priest or guiding teacher. We currently are led in our spiritual practice by our Dharma Circle and visiting teachers for retreats and special events. These visiting teachers provide us a rich and diverse base from which to grow and evaluate our needs for the future.
We also are providing for the growth of our Dharma Circle and other interested members through our Leadership Learning Series and visits to other centers.
Red Clay Sangha is honored by visits with the following teachers at past and future events:
