With dialogue, we continue to explore our spiritual paths, stressing the many areas of collaboration and understanding. This semi-annual series explores the many similarities between these two traditions. Using the ideas and spiritual teaching of the book “Christian Zen: A Way of Meditation” by William Johnston as a starting point, we will explore why they are still very pertinent to our current time. Participants do not have to have read the book in order to attend.
