San Francisco Zen Center invites you to a presentation by two young immigrants who will discuss the challenges they and others who are undocumented are facing.

Recently I gave meditation instruction at SFZC’s City Center. When I asked the newcomers what brought them to meditation, one person mentioned “peace of mind,” and another said “to be freed from suffering.” It struck me that no matter who we are, there is a common thread that brings us to practice—our inner-most desire to be freed from suffering and to live in peace and happiness.
