A Zen Workshop Complete With Actor Peter Coyote in Houston

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.
