Event description

Description

What is Engaged Buddhism? During this day we will explore how the ideals of compassion and loving kindness can transform our lives and the lives of others, while also reflecting on how to skilfully put these ideals into action.

ABOUT THE TEACHER:

Sister Soma is a Buddhist monk ordained in the Theravāda tradition. As the co-founder of Buddhist Insights, a non-profit organization connecting people with monastics in NYC, she has learned the Dharma through the perspective of monks and nuns of all different traditions, and incorporates aspects from all of them in her own practice. Her spiritual path is inspired by the social engagement of her preceptor, Venerable Paññāvati Bhikkhuni; by the knowledge and wisdom of Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi; and by the open-mindedness of her teacher, Bhante Suddhāso.
