Dear Friend in Spirit,
This Sunday, join us at The Center for Spiritual Living DC as we once again ground ourselves in Spiritual Truths to uplift not only our own consciousness but the overall consciousness in the Nation’s capital as well!

This Sunday, we shall receive an ENCOURAGEMENT from a guest – The Rev. Ōshin Jennings.
Rev. Ōshin Jennings, Hoshi, is a Deaf Zen Buddhist monk in the White Plum lineage of Soto Zen. Ōshin is a student of Enkyo O’Hara Roshi, Abbott of the Village Zendo, who named him a Dharma Holder/Assistant Teacher, in 2016. Ōshin serves as the Village Zendo’s representative on the Buddhist Council of New York, where he lives and works as a psychotherapist and artist. The focus of Ōshin’s research is where creativity, meditation, and psychological health meet. As possibly the first ever Deaf Zen Buddhist priest, Ōshin is a pioneer in, and frequent lecturer on, making the Buddhist teachings accessible to communities that traditionally have had limited access to the Dharma. As part of his vision of accessibility he founded No Barriers Zen to provide accessible meditation to the Greater Washington, D.C. area.


Rev. Oshin Jennings


Expanding your practice will be the topic Rev. Ōshin Jennings will present to the CSLDC family.

You are cordially invited to hear an ENCOURAGEMENT on this topic from a SPIRITUAL not RELIGIOUS perspective.

In case you haven’t seen Rev. Alex’s email announcement.
Our Center here in Washington, DC, has adopted Puerto Rico for the holidays. One of our members who is Puerto Rican and who is heading up our efforts. She was on the island during the storm and has emphasized to us that the organization ADELANTE is helping families in rural areas who are still struggling with getting their most basic needs met.
