Buddhism and Social Activism

About This Event

In this talk, respected scholar and practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism, Professor Jan Willis, will speak to us about the overall message and central teachings of Buddhism and about how she sees these teachings as calling upon each of us to become “engaged” in some form of activism that will help to make this world a better place--for us and those coming after us.

Venue Highlights

Meditation is for everyone.  

We all have a body, so we nourish it, and exercise to keep it healthy.  Our minds need the same kind of attention and care.  Meditation training allows our mind to focus, relax and open.  This is how we join our head, heart and life.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
