Walk Like a Buddha

Jan. 15, 2014: The Center for Religious Engagement hosted the frank discussion "Walk Like a Buddhist" by author and Shambhala Buddhist practitioner Lodro Rinzler. Among the questions addressed were "How can I be the person I want to be when my job is unfulfilling?", "Is it OK to be spiritual even if I am in a romantic relationship that is not exclusive?", and "Can I practice Buddhism and wear really cool hats?" Those in attendance learned how meditation can inform the details of daily life, such as going out with friends, disappointing dates and work-related stress, as well as how to apply meditation to realize goals producing societal change.​
