We are pleased to announce what promises to be an informative and exciting workshop on the healing nature of Zen rituals.
Please Join via Zoom:
Our presenter will be Paula Aria, whose second book, Bringing Zen Home, focuses on the healing power of ritualized activities that are part of the daily lives of women in contemporary Japan. Paula taught a similar workshop at Kannon Do in 2015, which was enthusiastically received.
