A Walk with Sam

Friday, August 18, 4:00 – 6:00 pm

The Dharma Center is honored to take part in the second annual Walk with Sam.  This Walk is an opportunity to learn more about different religions in the area, possibly dispelling stereotypes and opening our hearts and minds.

The Dharma Center’s doors will be open and leaders of some of our groups and sanghas will be on hand to welcome visitors participating in the Walk and share what it is about the Buddha’s teachings that is considered so valuable, timeless and noble.  Several other churches and places of faith are taking turns in the walk, which continues through the afternoon. Please check our website again before attending in case our time slot changes.

All are Warmly Welcome.

This event was organized by McKinley Hall in memory and honor of Sam Edelman.

Why Buddhism and the Modern World Need Each Other

An evening with David Loy

Friday, October 20, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The highest ideal of Western civilization (now globalized) has been to restructure our societies so that they are more socially just. The most important goal for Buddhism is to awaken and put an end to the dukkha (suffering) due to the delusion of a separate self. Today it has become obvious that we need both: not just because individual transformation and social transformation complement each other, but because each needs the other in order to be successful.

This is a stand-alone, talk open to the public which kicks off a weekend non-residential retreat led by David.  For more information and to register for the retreat, click here.
