For our 2019 Lenten Weekend – Rooted in Wholeness – we welcomed the Rev. Ōshin Jennings. Rev. Jennings is a Soto Zen Buddhist priest, trained psychotherapist, and multi-media artist. He is the first known Deaf Buddhist monk and leads No Barriers Zen, a meditation community based in Washington, DC. The aim of No Barriers Zen is to make meditation practice accessible to people of all abilities and disabilities.
In addition to leading our evening sessions on meditation, Rev. Jennings also preached at our 9 am service, led our adult forum, had a lunch Q&A with our youth, and participated in our afternoon interfaith panel discussion.
We will be posting videos of the sessions soon so check back!
Thank you to everyone who helped make this weekend a success.
