Wednesday Evening Meditation, Tea and Conversation

WEDNESDAY Nov. 30th, 7 - 9pm, Falling - In Community!

with Chris Lods

Mr. Pang was selling baskets.
Coming down off a bridge he fell spilling baskets everywhere. His daughter threw herself down next to him.
'What are you doing?' he cried.
'I'm helping Daddy.' she said. 
'Good thing no one was looking.' he replied.

When the politics of the election swung the other direction, this Koan came up for me. Falling, feelings, and questions about community came up.

I felt the fear of others and my own as well when talking to family in Indiana and hearing their excitement about the result. Falling is so direct. It may be a way to connect with others. Let's explore together.


Join us every Wednesday evening at 7 PM for Meditation followed by tea, a talk on Zen Koans and conversation.

You do not need any previous experience or introduction to participate. Everyone is welcome.
