At the day-long event, they’ll discuss the history of Sravasti Abbey – the first Tibetan Buddhist monastery for Western nuns and monks in the U.S – and the impact its had on the Pacific Northwest.
Chodron, abbess of Sravasti and co-author of “The Foundation of Buddhist Practice” ( co-written with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama) will speak at 10:30 a.m. Then, after lunch, at 1:30 p.m., Chodron will lead a meditation workshop.
The event is free and will be held in the Museum’s Eric A. Johnston Auditorium, 2316 W. First Avenue.
If everyone who reads and appreciates FāVS, helps fund it with a tax-deductible donation, we can provide more stories like this. For as little as $5, you can support FāVS – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
