Jimy Sohns & Whatismu- Benefit Concert For Great Plains Zen Center

We are pleased to announce “A Benefit Concert for Great Plains Zen Center” at Countryside Church on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 7:00 pm, featuring Whatismu and special guest Jimy Sohns.

Whatismu artists Lorrie Kountz and Laura Jansons will bring their unique style of instrumental fusion rock to Countryside

accompanied by haunting, intricately crafted videos created by Laura Jansons. As a prelude, a rare up-close and personal acoustic performance by 60's icon Jimy Sohns of Shadows of Knight (GLORIA, SHAKE) will take place.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online at www.greatplainszen.org or at the door.

Signed CD's, artwork, books, refreshments and much more will be available at the event. All proceeds will go the Myoshinji Building Renovation Project.

The meditation hall is the place that calls us to come, sit and awaken. Since its inception over 20 years ago, the Great Plains Zen Center has been growing and evolving, offering a deeply-rooted Zen training curriculum and at the same time reaching out creatively to serve the diversity of those coming to the practice today. We do this at two locations: Countryside Unitarian Universalist Church in Palatine, Illinois, and at our retreat center, Myoshinji, in Monroe, Wisconsin.

In recent years, our retreat attendance has grown, stretching the capacity of our Meditation Hall located in the main building. Our property was purchased with the intent of eventually converting the work building on the property into a meditation hall and the time has come to take this next step. This concert is part of our Myoshinji Building Renovation Project fundraising campaign.
