Buddhist House Retreat Saturday

An invitation from Buddhist House:

Buddhist House will be hosting a full-day retreat from 10am to 3pm this Saturday, led by Zen Priest Anraku Hondorp. Anraku will lead us with teachings, sitting and walking meditation. We will have Typhoon lunch at 12:30pm, so if you would like to do be with us for a half day, please come and go at this time (but we encourage you to come for the whole day).

Use this opportunity to listen to yourself and recharge during these difficult times.

Date: Saturday, November 15
Time: 10am to 3pm
Place: Buddhist House

"The [Balkan] Situations": Half the size, half the name

Upperclassmen may remember The Balkan Situations, a band of Wesleyan students that plays folk music from the Balkans, “and some other stuff, too.” Well, the group is now smaller – it’s a four-piece band made up of Wesleyan current students and alums – but they’re still performing weekly at Typhoon. They’ve changed their name to “The Situations,” since they’re now half the size and thus half the name.

What: “The Situations” plays Eastern European music at Typhoon!
When: Every Thursday and Friday from 6-9 pm
Where: Typhoon Restaurant, on Main Street

(Seriously, this group is fantastic. Highly recommended. They even incorporate Hungarian music. Can you get better than that? I’m a little biased though. Yay Hungary!)
