The Buddhist Peace Fellowship - Tampa Bay Message Board › K.C. Walpole
On Sunday, the 19th, K.C. Walpole, the abbot of the Gateless Gate Zen Center
in Gainesville, Florida, will be the guest speaker at the Clear Water Zen
Center. Walpole has had an active ministry in the Florida prisons for many
years and he is embarking this summer on a cross-country motorcycle odyssey
to raise awareness about the issues he has seen in our prisons and jails. He
also hopes to raise support and money to build a residential zen center in
Gainesville, where newly-released prisoners will have the opportunity to
re-enter society and rebuild their lives in a safe and nurturing
Dharma-based community. A particular focus of the program is on assisting
women with children and the particular challenges they face.
We will start on Sunday as always at 8:30am and sit a round of zazen and the
remainder of the morning will be given to K.C.
We hope you will join us for this program - a great example of engaged
