    Room: Meditation Hall

    Join Rev. angel Kyodo williams, Sensei for a free, introductory, Friday night talk on this weekend's theme about Fearlessness in the Face of the Dark Ages. There is limited seating, so please make certain to register online in advance to reserve your spot.  

    In the face of today’s political and social unrest, is it possible to create a wise, kind, and strong human society? Rev. angel Kyodo williams will speak about our capacity to embody wholeness and fearlessly create a society based on human goodness.

    By witnessing and confronting our habitual patterns and everyday actions that are entangled in social constructs, we can interrupt the system that perpetuates social injustice and environmental degradation. We must become more aware of how we embody this system. Awareness and connection to others is the first step in creating good human society.

    There are no prerequisites for this talk—everyone is welcome. This talk is appropriate for all races and ethnicities.
