Dharma Entertainment & Discussion Night: “Witness”

Northwest USA

Heart of Wisdom Zen Temple

Join us for a dharma-themed movie and stay for the discussion. This filmed stage production is the story of a good-hearted young woman who volunteers at a local soup kitchen, but decides she can’t truly understand what the homeless are experiencing until she becomes one of them. She goes on a “street retreat” with the Faithful Fools, a San Francisco-based street ministry cofounded by a Unitarian minister and a Franciscan nun. The film offers the opportunity to discuss homelessness and how our spiritual understanding may shape our perspective on the topic.

Martha Boesing, who has written and produced over 40 plays, wrote “The Witness” and directed the one-woman show. Check the calendar for “Song of the Magpie,” which she will be performing in person on May 18.

Free — including the popcorn. Please go to zendust.org/heartofwisdom for more information and directions.
