Venerable Thubten Chodron

Being Feminist and Buddhist: Life as a Western Nun

Public talk with Ven. Thubten Chodron, 7:30 pm

 

What leads a college-educated, American woman to forsake career and family to join a traditional, patriarchal religious order as a Buddhist nun? Venerable Thubten Chodron, one of the first generation of Western Buddhist nuns, shares her journey and tells how living in the East and West have shaped her understanding of gender roles, culture, and what it means to be free and empowered.
