    Interfaith Chaplaincy from a Buddhist Perspective

    2:00 PM-1:00 PM
    2019.03.08-2019.03.09
    United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities
    767 Eustis St., Suite 140, St. Paul, MN 55114

    Friday, March 8, 6:30-8:30 p.m. and Saturday, March 9, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

    In this workshop we will look at Interfaith Spiritual Care from a Buddhist perspective emphasizing the interventions of presence, deep listening and interfaith prayer. We will look at the obstacles to supportive presence and work with the practices of non-judgmental awareness and non-attachment from views. Participants will have a chance to explore and practice compassion for those with different viewpoints, and leave with more confidence in utilizing tools to reach across religious boundaries.
