An American Zen Buddhist training center in the Mountains and Rivers Order, offering Sunday programs, weekend retreats and month-long residencies.
This film about Dharma punk Noah Levine is coming to Times Square and is also being silmulcast on the web. Press release reproduced below:
MEDITATE AND DESTROY on Friday Oct 24 @ 9 p.m. at the Times Square Arts Center.
MEDITATE AND DESTROY provides an intimate and dynamic portrait of an unconventional Buddhist teacher and counselor. This powerful 80 minute documentary shows how author Noah Levine (Dharma Punx, Against the Stream) uses his personal experience and punk-rock sensibilities to connect with young people within juvenile halls and urban centers around the country. Tattoos, motorcycles, and an engaging punk rock soundtrack are featured in this hardhitting look at how Buddhism has a place in the world of punks.
