Join us as Lexington author Dr. Meikle Paschal shares the spiritual and personal journey described in his new book, The Black Buddhist .
Dr. Pascal was born and raised in the projects of Boston. As a young black man, he was uncomfortable in his own skin, fighting the pressure of a racist society that he felt kept the cards stacked against him. 

Today, in his mid-60's, he has found his way to both personal and professional success. In this program, Dr. Paschal will describe his transformative journey. 

Overcoming the poverty, drug abuse and racism of his early years, Meikle Paschal was able to get an education, earn a doctorate, and become a respected educator. Dr. Paschal is retired from a long and successful career as a teacher and administrator with the Boston Public Schools, and is  currently teaching at Massachusetts Bay Community College. His passion is working with non-traditional and unprepared college students, very much like the person he used to be.

How did he succeed when so many others fail? Dr. Paschal credits his practice of Buddhism with providing the wisdom and compassion that has transformed his life. Through the teachings of Buddha, Paschal was able to bring order and discipline to his life and to discover the pathways which have led him to inner peace. Join us as he shares his story...a look within that provides a lesson for us all.

Refreshments will be served. Seating will be on a first come, first serve basis. Copies of The Black Buddhist will be available for sale at the event ($15.00 paperback).
