“Not-knowing allows you to center yourself within a boundless net of interconnection and to expand your circle of caring...there is nothing that you cannot bear witness to. Inbearing witness, you are actively engaged and embodied, even struggling, with whatever is arising...It is impossible to predict what the action in any situation will be.. or what might result from it. The underlying intention is that the action that arises be a caring action, which serves everyone and everything, including yourself, in the whole situation.” – Roshi Wendy Egyoku Nakao, Abbott of Zen Center of Los Angeles
It has been a full year at Zen Peacemakers International. Continuing on three decades of social action and meditation, we have gathered over one thousand members from nearly 50 countries around the world whose lives have been inspired by our work and by the Three Tenets of the Zen Peacemakers: Not Knowing, Bearing Witness and Taking Action.
Maintaining our momentum, online platform, bearing witness programs, and supporting our founder Bernie all require that ZPI has a strong foundation of supporters. Thank you for being an active member this year and contributing to our goals. Please take this moment to consider setting up a monthly membership contribution or to make a one-time gift of any amount.
