Sit for Scholarship 2021
Saturday, July 24th, 2021 from 10:00am-4:00pm ET
The Zen Center’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice Group is thrilled to launch Sit for Scholarship 2021!
On Saturday, July 24th we invite all formal students, members, friends and fans of the Zen Center to sit together in meditation to raise funds for the Zen Center’s Scholarship Fund. This fund supports current students and prospective students in our study, practice, and service work in hospitals, hospices, nursing homes and community organizations. By participating, you’re helping to make the Zen Center a more equitable community.
How Does the Sit for Scholarship Work?
Before the sit, those interested will sign up online and ask their circles to sponsor them. On July 24th we’ll sit together from 10am to 4pm via Zoom. There will be timed meditation periods and a dharma talk. Stay for all or part of the time.
