This Sunday, May 25th from 1 to 2:30 pm, Arthur Wa Yu Kennedy will lead the meditation and dharma talk at the Insight LA People of Color Sit. The People of Color Sit is a place for all self identified People of Color to deepen their meditation practice. Meditators of all levels are welcomed. A donation of $5 is encouraged to support the teachings. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Arthur Wayu Kennedy is from the Yokoji-Zen Mountain Center, a mountain retreat located on 160 acres of pristine wilderness in the local San Jacinto Mountains. Wayu has received Denkai (Precept Holder) Transmission from Tenshin Roshi. And Tenshin Roshi received his dharma transmission from Taizan Maezumi Roshi--one of the early Japanese teachers to bring Zen to the West in the 60's. Denkai is the first step towards becoming an official Zen teacher, or sensei. Wayu is also a certified teacher of Chanoyu (Japanese Tea Ceremony) from the Uresenke School, Kyoto, Japan.
I think it will be a wonderful day. We encourage everyone to donate at least $5 to help support the teaching. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Show message history
