On Sunday May 1st at 11:15 AM there will be a presentation on the intersection between Quaker and Buddhist wisdom. Attend on-site or use the link on the home page to attend via Zoom.
This unique interfaith forum will explore the intersections of Quakerism with Engaged Buddhism. The two traditions share key features, e.g. silent practice, respect for one’s own experience as well as that of others, equality of all, peace, social justice, community life and freedom of conscience. The natural environment is also hugely important with the emphasis on simple living to minimize the impact on the world.
Our presenters will delve deeply into how Quaker testimonies and Engaged Buddhism’s Mindfulness Trainings shape the lives of today’s Friends and Mindfulness Practitioners and the impacts they can have on the world at large.
