Ven Chodron of Sravasti Abbey to give talk on “Being Human”

Ven. Thubten Chodron, founder of Sravasti Abbey, will be giving a talk on Tuesday at North Idaho College examining how identity can either divide, or unite.

In her lecture, “Being Human: Not Seeing the World as Us and Them,” Chodron will share her experience as a Buddhist nun, where, according to a press release, she’s spent four decades training her mind, “to see past markers of identity: nationality, gender, sexuality, culture, and so on—to focus on our common human identity as the foundation for universal love and compassion.”

The talk will be from 6:30-8 p.m. in the college’s Edminster Student Union Building, 1000 W. Garden Ave. in Coeur d’Alene.

Jimmy Young will not hesitate to share that he has not had an easy life. He’s loved his family deeply, and, yet, treated them the opposite of what he felt for them. “A big part of [my writing] is getting that out there and trying to be transparent and giving some lessons that I’ve seen,” Young said. “I’ve seen some pretty dark places through my drug addiction. I’ve caused a lot of pain, wreckage and turmoil in other people's lives — in mine as well, obviously.”
