Why Meditate?

 

On July 11th at 7:00PM, join Sokuzan as he presents a basic overview of the practice of meditation and why it's important to train our minds in this way.

As a transmitted monk in the Soto Zen lineage of Japan and abbot of SokukoJi Buddhist Monastery in Battle Creek, Michigan, Sokuzan welcomes any and all questions regarding this centuries-old practice.
