Parabola LIVE: Featuring the “Monkey King” at The New York Insight Meditation Center
The Editors and Friends of Parabola Magazine
Sunday, March 27, 2011.
2 p.m.–5:30 p.m.
Join Parabola editors Tracy Cochran, Jeff Zaleski, acclaimed storyteller Diane Wolkstein, musician and world traveler Jeff Greene and other special guests for an afternoon of music, meditation, and a rekindling of the lost arts of storytelling and conversation. The highlight will be a performance from the Monkey King Epic, which tells the story of how Buddhism came to China. Fall under the spell of the impetuous Money King and his guide and minder, a determined Buddhist monk, as they travel from China to India to bring back the Buddha’s scriptures. This event is suitable for adults and children, and will benefit both New York Insight and Parabola.
