Panel Discussion on Catholicism and Buddhism

2020-08-11 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

The United community is invited to join Dr. Ayo’s Buddhist Pastoral/Spiritual Care class on August 11th from 9:30 – 11 a.m. to hear the panel discussion “From Catholicism to Buddhism and Back Again, or Not.” Panelists include United students Kelly Casey, Daria Day, scottie hall, and Eileen Hanson.  Many Buddhists in the US are converts to Buddhism, so what aspects of their root traditions do they bring to Buddhism? These panelists will describe how they understand the spiritual movements between Catholicism and the Buddhism(s) they practice now and discuss how we provide spiritual care to people informed by Catholicism and Buddhism? All are welcome.
