Just a last reminder that Barbara and Roland Wegmüller
will be visiting Chester in the UK from Switzerland next weekend.
There'll be a relaxed day of practice together on Sat from 9am-4pm, including
indoors in Bishop Lloyd's Palace medieval rooms in the city centre, and
some time out on the streets too. And on Sunday we'll have shorter meet
up in Sally's Secret Garden at 11am for an hour or so. Barbara and
Roland are Zen teachers in the tradition of Bernie Glassman, the Zen
Peacemakers and the White Plum Asanga. They work particularly with the
Zen of collaborative circles, and with finding tools for practicing Zen
fully in householder rather than semi-monastic life. I've held back
from advertising this visit as a 'public event', so that it can be a bit
more relaxed as a space for conversation together, so anyone is
welcome, and there'll be no charge.
Also visiting the same weekend will be Ari Pliskin
from the US, who's developing "Food for All" community cafes from the
ideas of Bernie Glassman and the actor Jeff Bridges. He'll talk to us
about his projects on the Saturday morning, and we're hopefully
arranging for him to give a talk too in the Buddhist House in
Narborough, Leicestershire on the evening of Tuesday 29th, home of Caroline Brazier and the Tariki Trust.
If anyone would like any more details, message me and I'll help in any way I can.
