 This workshop is for people anchored in a Christian contemplative tradition who want to explore the insights that Buddhism offers for inner and outer peace building. Specifically, participants will explore the concepts of Wisdom and Compassion through teachings, practices and discussion. The workshop will enable participants to:

  • Get insights from Buddhism related to personal harmony and social impact.

The workshop will be led by Rev. Grace Song and Prof. Randall Zachman. Reverend Song is an ordained Won Buddhist Kyomunim, meditation teacher, and interfaith dialogue advocate. She’s the Won Buddhist Studies Department Chair at Won Institute of Graduate Studies and Buddhist Chaplain at the University of Pennsylvania.
