Meditation with a whiff of Zen is the second in the series, Travel the World’s Religions, sponsored by the Victoria Multifaith Society (VMS), and designed to create opportunities for people to familiarize themselves with other faiths, mingle with people of other religions and feel comfortable and welcome within each space.

Wayne Codling—a former Zen monastic and a lineage holder in the Soto Zen tradition—will provide a short talk and opportunity for discussion and Q&A. There will be short seated and walking meditation followed by tea, light refreshments and socializing/sharing time.
