Good morning. As we look forward to next week's convention in Atlanta, we are delighted to be able to offer, for the first time at the CTSA, Zen meditation sessions each morning. Ruben Habito, Professor at the Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University, is an experienced and respected Zen master and long-time CTSA member. He will lead sessions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 715am-815am. As indicated in the Program, on Friday and Saturday, the sessions will take place in "Georgia 10," and on Sunday in "Georgia 13." The sessions are open to all; any CTSA member can come any day, even on the spur of the moment, but it would be helpful for Ruben to have an idea in advance as to about how many are interested and likely to come. We ask you then to email Ruben at firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know that you are likely to be coming, putting "Zen Prayer/Meditation" in the subject line of the email.
Ruben will then be able to share with all who contact him a short article on Zen, and also links to two short videos which introduce Zen meditation for those who are new to this.
But again, you can just show up on any day or all three days!
