Our Patio

In the back of the Milwaukee Zen Center we have created a patio and recently installed three benches that were donated by a sangha member and placed a couple of stone statues under the trees. It is a lovely, peaceful space in dappled shade from the tall locust (?) tree and accessible from the side alley. We have already used the patio for Equinox and Solstice ceremonies, and now, with the new benches, it invites everyone for a meditative pause from daily life.
