Leadership Statement from SFZC regarding Edward Brown's Situation

Leadership Statement Regarding Edward Brown from the SFZC Sangha News sent out today and shared on Facebook which I will also do.- Thanks ZC folks.
DC comment: The first paragraph of ZC leaderships' letter understandably misses a few initial steps in the sequence of events. First, Edward Brown sent out an email on the subject. He sent the supporting material to me - the letter of complaint, ZC's email to him, his final response (after calming down some) and the audio files for the talks. He said I could post whatever I wanted. I'm always involved in more than I can keep up with so I kept all the material in a folder to think about later and kept communicating with Edward stressing this wasn't permanent, that ZC and he will evolve. Then Lichen Brown posted a letter on Facebook. There were many responses to her post and many questions so I shared it and then posted the supporting material so people could judge for themselves. Ed wrote me that Lichen was surprised by the enormous response to her letter and asked if I'd add to the cuke page on this that "it was not her intention to hurt or harm anyone, nor is it mine."
