Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

This Sunday, Peter Coyote whose distinctive voice was heard most recently in Ken Burns' The Roosevelts:An Intimate History on PBS is headed back to Houston to lead a three-hour Mask Workshop.

According to a press release announcing the event at the Houston Zen Center from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. November 2, the workshop helps participants "Explore the masks we all wear; putting them on, taking them off. Experience the playful and profound activity of the masks we know we wear, and - perhaps -- the masks we don't know we wear. "

Besides acting in more than 100 films, Coyote is a Zen Buddhist priest, ordained in 2012 after he began practicing zen in San Francisco in the mid-1970s.

The workshop is limited to 20 people and costs $150 for the day, $75 for members of the Houston Zen Center, 1605 Heights Boulevard.. Coyote will also give a dharma talk at 9:30 a.m. that is free and open to the public.
