Annual Dinner/Dance


Aug. 29, 2012

Dear Friends:

On Sept. 15 we will be celebrating our Fourth Annual Heart of Wisdom Founders’ Dinner.  This is a time to come together as a community, enjoy a wonderful meal and show gratitude for our abundance and practice.    (To RSVP and more information)

This year we have two types of dances both celebrating this wonderful life.  The first dance is the dance of preparation.  As we work together to bring life to this event sangha members have volunteered to cook, host, greet, set up, serve, entertain and clean up.  This is an intricate dance with ongoing choreography, set changes, life’s music and a cast of hundreds.

The second dance will be a performance by Anusha Fernando who is a member of the North Shore Zendo in Vancouver, BC. Perhaps you have sat a sesshin at Great Vow with her as she has a strong Zen practice along with her dance practice.

Anusha Fernando is a performer and teacher of Bharata Natyam, a type of classical Indian dance which grew out of the temples of South India as a form of spiritual practice.

She is also the Artistic Director of Shakti Dance, a society whose purpose is to promote this ancient classical Indian dance form through performances and training. 

It is with great pleasure that we invite everyone to this wonderful dinner along with the gift of an ancient spiritual dance performance.  Please RSVP so we know how many people to prepare for (click on the link above).

We are looking forward to seeing you!

With gratitude,

Kodo and the larger ZCO Sangha
