Welcome to May – Full Day Sit Coming Up / Also Book Group Update




Hi there everyone.

Wanted to let folks know that we’ll be doing a full day sit (workin’ 9 to 5 this time around) on Sunday, May 18th.  As usual, it’ll be at All Beings Zen Center in sunny Adams Morgan.  Please do join us.

The schedule is below.

Also, our book club is on to a new book, and we’ve chosen Red Pine’s translation of The Heart Sutra.  The Heart Sutra is about two pages long, so the book breaks down couplets into chapters, and Red Pine fills us in on the hows, wheres, whos, and whys.  Excited for this one.  Please join us Sunday June 15th 8am-9:30am.  Tea and snacks provided.

Amazon has it of course, but you can also get it maybe here, and also here.
