In 1966 Roshi Philip Kapleau, author of the landmark book The Three Pillars of Zen, was invited to give a talk at MIT by Nobel Laureate Salvador Luria.
Only six people came.
He gave his talk on Zen meditation anyway.
One of the six became Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., who had his first encounter with meditation that night. Kabat-Zinn is a pioneer in the scientific study of mindfulness and is responsible for teaching meditation to many thousands of people.
What is the right audience? The Zen answer is, the audience you have.

An excellent lesson in Beginner’s Mind, Tony. In my “wisdom” about such things, I probably would have passed on giving the talk.
