Spokane: Ven. Chodron at UU
September 8, 2019 @ 9:15 am PDT
Conflict and Compassion: Opening Our Hearts When Our Views Differ
Ven. Thubten Chodron is the UU Sunday speaker
Two Sunday Services 9:15 & 11:00
We expect our friends to share our views and values, but sometime we find ourselves on opposing sides. What happened? How do we keep cool heads, open hearts, and find common ground without blame and judgment? Buddhist nun Venerable Thubten Chodron shares how bringing compassion into personal conflicts helps us to listen and act with clarity and wisdom. With compassion we can open the door to understanding, forgiveness, and long-term benefit for ourselves and others. .
Come for both services if you can. Ven. Chodron never gives the same talk twice! Or watch on livestream.
The congregation at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spokane has invited Ven. Chodron as a guest to their pulpit since 2004. The relationship is warm and receptive on both sides. UU also hosts Abbey nuns to teach Buddhist meditation throughout the year.
The UU Church is well known for it openness to all comers.
