Zen Community Seeks Awareness Sitting in Silence

From an AP story by Luis Andres Henao headlined “Anchorage Zen Community seeks awareness sitting in silence”:

For more than three decades, members of the Anchorage Zen Community have gathered in unusual venues — from a busy strip mall to a converted garage — with the same intention: simply to sit and meditate in silence.

Nomadic no more, they have found stillness and stability in a small zendo, or meditation hall, tucked on the edge of two neighborhoods in Alaska’s most populous city and epicenter of urban culture.
