On this Sunday, Myo-O will help us understand what this means as well as how to take refuge in Community and how to enjoy the beautiful fruit that grows in the soil of beloved community. Rev. Myo-O Habermas-Scher is ordained in the Soto Zen Buddhist tradition and currently works as an interfaith chaplain at the University of MN Medical Center.

Drawing on the sacred phrases, scripture, and poetry of the many spiritual traditions of the earth, the Dances blend chant, live music and movement into a living experience of unity, peace and integration.
