Well-being

BRATTLEBORO The Brattleboro Zen Center In-person meditation: Vera Riley initiated this response to the ecological crisis "born of greed and ignorance,": "Sitting, we face our own greed and ignorance but we can develop peacefulness that may ripple outward. We chant briefly and then sits in silence for half an hour. We welcome all interested in joining this peaceful action, either with us in-person, or from wherever you are." BZC founding teacher Hakusho Ostlund: "While meditation isn't the solution to all the world's problems and sitting for a specific cause should never be an excuse to abstain from more overt ways of social engagement, I believe there is great power in ritual action.". 1 - 1:35 p.m. on Saturdays.
