Kindness In Times of Disagreement
with Ven. Thubten Chodron

Tuesday, April 18

6:30 pm Pacific Time

on Zoom

Abbess teaches.

What do we usually do when others disagree with us? Repeat ourselves, raise our voices, and tear down others and their ideas. Do these strategies change peoples’ minds or lead to understanding? Join Buddhist nun Venerable Thubten Chodron to explore what’s going on in our hearts when disagreements arise and how kindness can help us in such difficult situations.

All Abbey Dharma programs are offered freely, and your offering is welcomed. Make an offering here.
