A Special Evening

Zen Master Bon Soeng graciously led our Sangha this past Thursday evening, joining us via Zoom, with a guided meditation, dharma talk, followed by a time of Q&A.

We had a record crowd of Sangha members and guest join us in-person and on Zoom.

Master Bon Soeng was very insightful, compassionate, down to earth, and encouraging to our members who are practicing meditation in Birmingham and the greater southern region.
