This introduction describes the histories of the centers, some of the background of the main teachers and a description of the meditation classes and other events each offers. Descriptive detail of the shrine rooms of each center sets the scene for later descriptions of the classes and events. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the means of outreach each center engages in as it tries to attract new members and participants.
