On Sunday, May 18 Soshimsa Zen Center held its first ceremony since the long journey of finding and renovating its new location at 1112 North Avenue in Plainfield NJ. It was truly a pleasure seeing familiar faces and the ceremony became one of celebrating new beginnings (for the fish, for all those graduating school and for the new Soshimsa location) as well as the old friendships. Thank you all for attending and thank you all who mailed in their prayers and best wishes.

On April 16, 2013, Soshimsa Zen Center was once again invited to Richard Hall Community Mental Health Center to give a presentation. The presentation was entitled Spirituality and Culture from the Korean Zen Tradition. There was a wonderful exchange of questions and answers and plans were made for more future collaborations between Richard Hall and the Zen Center.
