Zen and the art of war recovery

The Zen Center of Los Angeles is inviting veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to participate in a weekend meditation retreat aimed at healing psychological, spiritual and physical damage they’ve suffered during combat.

The retreat begins Friday (today) and will be led by Buddhist monk Claude Anshin Thomas, a Vietnam War veteran who was awarded the Purple Heart and Distinguished Flying Cross.

The cost of participation is $250, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Call (818) 640-4931 to register or make a donation.
