Negativity can be hard to avoid, but the Rothko Chapel has prepared a program to help.       The local nonprofit will be hosting Buddhist meditation guided by Myokei Caine-Barrett, Shonin, at noon on Wednesday, May 3. The Chapel is located at 3900 Yupon. The suggested donation to attend is $10. Buddhist meditation aims to develop mindfulness, concentration, tranquility and insight, in the hope of discovering enlightenment by stripping away hate, anger and other negative feelings and attitudes.   The current bishop of the Nichiren Order of North America (NONA), Caine-Barrett is the first Western woman in the world, and first person of African-Japanese descent, to be ordained in the Nichiren Shu tradition. She is also the first female bishop in NONA. She is resident priest and guiding teacher of the Nichiren Buddhist Sangha of Texas and Myoken-ji Temple, where part of her work is helping inmates and veterans.  The event is a continuation of Rothko Chapel’s educational meditation series, “12 Moments: Experiencing Spiritual and Faith Traditions.” For more information about the Rothko Chapel, with a full calendar of upcoming programs, workshops and events, visit rothkochapel.org or call 713-524-9839.
