A Buddhist Politics in Challenging Times: Zen Meditation and Compassionate Action with Tom Redden

Session #1 (May 23, 2017): Developing Mindfulness- This meeting will focus on learning about Zen meditation practice, how to “sit” (meditate) and apply a moment-to-moment “mindfulness” practice to our daily activities. We will analyze the Buddhist view of our “sense of self” and show how an understanding of “self” can help with our own anxieties and stress in our lives. Tom Redden, PhD, a Professor of History and Politics at Southern Vermont College, in Bennington, VT, is also an ordained Zen Buddhist priest in the Zen Peacemaker Order and has maintained a 39-year daily meditation practice.
