Kirkland, WA: The Compassionate Kitchen
November 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PST
This public talk is also a release of Ven. Chodron’s new book of the same title, The Compassionate Kitchen. In it, Ven. Chodron offers traditional Buddhist teachings and specific practices used at the Abbey, along with advice for taking the principles into our own home in order to make the sharing of food a spiritual intention for anyone. By eating consciously and mindfully—and by including certain rituals—we find ourselves less obsessive about food and can enjoy our meals more.
Judith Simmer-Brown, author of Dakini’s Warm Breath: The Feminine Principle in Tibetan Buddhism, comments, “This precious book reveals mealtime as meditation, and cooking and dining as sacred offerings to the noble ones.”
7 pm – 9 pm, American Evergreen Buddhist Association Chi Yuan Temple, 13000 NE 84th Street, Kirkland, WA.
