An Evening with angel Kyodo williams! A very special 2nd Monday Sit!

It's our first celebrity Dharma teacher session!!! angel Kyodo williams is in the house May 12th at 7pm, y'all!!!!!!
angel Kyodo williams is a maverick spiritual teacher, adviser and friend to many. As of October 2013, she is the world's 2nd Black female Zen teacher.

She is the founder of Center for Transformative Change and the author of the critically acclaimed book, Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living with Fearlessness and Grace, which has been hailed as “a classic” by Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield, and “an act of love” by novelist Alice Walker. angel is a social visionary that sees Transformative Social Change: applying inner awareness practice to broad-based social change, as America’s next great movement. Calling for a paradigm shift that “changes the way change is done,” angelenvisions the building of a presence-centered social justice movement as the foundation for personal freedom, a just society and the healing of divisions of race, class, faith and politic. She notes, “Without inner change, there can be no outer change. Without collective change, no change matters."
It's time for 2nd Monday meditation, open for all who are interested in cultivating Peace and Joy! Focus inwardly and arouse insight (vipassana.) Come meditate! No experience necessary, it's a family affair!
