Inner Peace, Earth Peace: Buddhist-Christian Spiritual Practices

Westoworth United Church presents a fall study session on Buddhist-Christian Spiritual Practices, 7:30-9:00 pm Mondays, November 7-28.

How do we find inner peace? How can we bring peace to others, to our earth and to our world? How can we spiritually sustain our justice ministry?

Sensei Tanis Moore and Sensei Frederick Ulrich from the Manitoba Buddhist Temple, along with Loraine MacKenzie Shepherd, will lead our fall study for this year, as we explore these topics through the teachings of Buddhism and of Christian mystics. We will also be learning spiritual practices which we can incorporate into our personal spiritual disciplines.

We will meet in person in the parlour for the four Monday nights of November, 7:30-9:00 pm Masks are strongly recommended. Please let Loraine know if you are interested in attending some or all of the sessions:
