The San Francisco Zen Center is hosting an evening of readings and reflections on The Arts of Contemplative Care – edited by Cheryl A. Giles and Willa B. Miller and recently released by Wisdom Publications – with contributing authors Daijaku Judith Kinst, Jennifer Block, Grace Schireson, and others.
