Zen Center offers a warm thanks to the Pema Chodron Foundation, which donated a large collection of books to our prison outreach program. These will be sent to men and women in prisons and jails throughout the country at no cost. The warmth and compassion we have come to associate with Pema Chodron are a true gift to those who experience so little of this in their daily lives.
We have also been the recipient many times of the generosity of the Insight Meditation Center of Redwood City for copies of the book The Issue at Hand by Gil Fronsdal. This is a wonderful introduction to Buddhist concepts and practices which is especially valuable for those newly on the path.
We are deeply grateful for the generosity of both of these organizations.
