Third Thursday at the Nelson features live music, free programs, art activities and more showcasing the talents of local artists and collaborators. Usually we chant in the presence of the Guanyin statue. That exhibit is under special ticketing until the summer. So we will be near the Japanese Exhibit in the hallway where the giant golden Buddha statue is located. We will have some cushions and blankets and will meditate and chant in the beauty of this exhibit. Note: There is a map to our sitting spot in the discussion section.
