It was wonderful meeting you at our Tuesday evening gathering for zazen. We look forward to you and your friends visiting with us on Saturday.
I offered to provide some simple introductory resources. Here’s a quick offering of links to articles I’ve written on Buddhism and Zen.
I hope you find them helpful.
