His presentation will introduce the philosophical perspectives and contemplative practices of Zen Buddhism and its impact on traditional Japanese culture. He will focus on how Zen’s rich heritage involves the intricate intertwining of spirituality, nature, and culture. You will also get a virtual glimpse of Sholom Park’s soon to be Zen Garden so you too can practice Zen meditation in nature. Register in advance to participate in a Japanese tea tasting and a chance to win an orchid.

December- To Prune or Not To Prune
