American culture glorifies rugged individualism, yet — deep inside — we all feel the need to belong to a group or community. What does it mean to belong? How can we fill that need in a healthy way?
American Buddhist nun, Thubten Chonyi, shares on how to connect with ourselves and others in ways that are meaningful and beneficial. Join her at North Idaho College on April 2 from 6:30-8 pm.
Venerable Chonyi is one of the most senior nuns at Sravasti Abbey, the Buddhist monastery near Newport, and has led retreats and courses at the Abbey and elsewhere. This event is free and open to the public. Donations to Sravasti Abbey are welcome. For more information contact Laura Templeman at 208-660-5477 or see the Event Schedule at sravastiabbey.org.
