Event description

Description

As the year draws to a close, it's easy to get overwhelmed by holiday activities and to forget the warm-heartedness that they are meant to evoke. Accordingly, we'll be spending this weekend focusing on kindling the spirit of goodwill through practices that evoke kindness, gratitude, generosity, and friendliness.

ABOUT THE TEACHER:

Bhante Suddhāso is a Buddhist monk living in New York City. The co-founder of Buddhist Insights, a non-profit organization connecting people with monastics, his work aims to convey Buddhist concepts and their practical applicability to everyday life. Bhante Suddhāso has studied under the guidance of some of the most important names in Western Buddhism, such as Ajahn Pasanno, Ajahn Amaro, Ajahn Vīradhammo, and Bhante Gunaratana. He was initially trained in Soto Zen Buddhism at Tassajara Zen Mountain Center. Subsequently, he was ordained at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery in California, where he was trained in the Thai Forest Tradition of Theravāda Buddhism. Since then he has lived at a variety of monasteries from different Buddhist traditions in both rural and urban environments. A dedicated teacher, Suddhāso has taught to people of all different ages and walks of life, as well as college students of universities like Harvard, New York University, Fordham University, University of Mary Washington, and Suffolk County Community College. Bhante Suddhāso brings to the table his first-hand, in-depth experience of both Theravāda and Soto Zen (where his first encounter with Buddhism took place in 2003) as well as scholarly knowledge of all other Buddhist traditions. www.bhantesuddhaso.com
