Public Talk by Author Kathleen McDonald: 'Resilience - How and Why'
Buddhism in Bath
7:30pm - 9pm
• What we'll do
“See things as they are and react with wisdom and compassion.” HH Dalai Lama
In the times we find ourselves, this can seem to be easier said than done. And yet, what, realistically, is the alternative? For the sake of our planet and its inhabitants, giving way to either cynicism or despair is not possible.
Renowned Buddhist author and teacher, Ven Sangye Khadro, explores what tools Buddhism can offer to lift our spirits, and to be a force for positive change in the world. These tools have been valued for more than two and a half thousand years, and still have much to offer anyone, Buddhist or not, religious or not, in the twenty first century. All very welcome.
