Day of Zen (actually Ch'an)

From the flier for today's event--

part of flier

Very beneficial practice, but I need to work on strenghtening my back. And find something better than a chair on which to sit. Unfortunately my long legs don't fit well under most benches. I would probably sit more often if the sitting had a wee bit less discomfort. As for the day of Ch'an (basically they call it Zen in the fliers because few people around here would recognize the name "Ch'an"), I think that one of the highlights was doing one of the walking meditation periods outside. What a site it must have been, two Buddhist monks in full robes followed by half a dozen people in the same posture going single file the main street of one of Pittsburgh's neighborhoods.
