Do you keep hearing the word “Zen” tossed around and are still not quite sure what it means?
Well, come over to Buddhist House this Thursday for a guided meditation and dharma talk by Zen Master Bon Haeng (a.k.a. “Mark”). He has a BA in Religion and Philosophy from Antioch College, currently teaches at the Cambridge Zen Center in Massacheusetts, and is just generally a very enlightened / interesting dude.
There will also be free Thai food after the event and a chance to chat and hang with Master Bon Haeng (getit?). See you there!

Charlie Smith ’15 is bringing in a very interesting person to talk to you:
Interested in testing your ideas and having the chance to ask tough

Affordable Care Act etc? Do you like free thai food?
If the answer to any of those questions is yes then come out to PAC

Perspective on Economic, Social, and Foreign Policy” followed by a Q&A
Where: PAC 001

Join us for an open mic (and some free Thai food!) to wrap up the Red Flag Campaign. The first hour will be dedicated to writing and creating and then we will invite people on stage to share their work/experiences. The central focus of the night is relationships and sexual violence. If you already have an act that you’re interested in performing, shoot an email to the SART intern Rachel Verner ’15, at rverner(at)wesleyan(dot)edu and she’ll set you up.

An opportunity to watch a great film and eat snazzy food from Katy Thompson ’15:
Sign House, WoCoHo, Malcolm X House, Film Hall and multiple Resident Advisors, have come together to put on a film viewing of Compensation. It premiered in 2000 at Sundance and focuses on deaf culture and racial issues.
There will also be Typhoon, so come watch an awesome movie and eat some Thai food.
“Compensation presents two unique African-American love stories between a deaf woman and a hearing man. Inspired by a poem written by Paul Laurence Dunbar, this moving narrative shares their struggle to overcome racism, disability and discrimination. An important film on African-American deaf culture, Davis innovatively incorporates silent film techniques (such as title cards and vintage photos) to make the piece accessible to hearing and deaf viewers alike, and to share the vast possibilities of language and communication.”
