THE LAUGHING BUDDHA:
On the Importance of Play in Work
Zen Buddhism teaches that smiling is a pathway to the present moment.  Laughter releases tension, which Zen sees as an expression of liberation, analogous to enlightenment.  Work without levity leads to intense seriousness and reduces our capacity for joy. Justice movements have long used singing, dancing and play to unite communities and generate energy.  We’ll talk about the importance of play as a source of sustenance for our work in the world.

February 14: Presenter: Rich MacDonald & Coordinator: John Collins

All religions, all this singing, one song. 
The differences are just illusion and vanity. 
The sun’s light looks a little different on this wall than it does on that wall, 
and a lot different on this other one, but it’s still one light.
Rumi.
