Interfaith Series on Aug 14 Focuses on Zen Buddhism

9-10 AM IN ROOM 2

On Sunday, join Jack Keene and friends in room 2 to watch another DVD lecture from Chautauqua Institution’s 2019 Interfaith Series. Roshi Bodhin Kjolhede [pronounced “BODE’n COAL-heed”] is a Zen Buddhist priest and Abbot of the Rochester Zen Center. Born in Michigan in 1948, he received a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. In 1971 he entered what would become a 15-year course of residential training at the Rochester Zen Center under Roshi Philip Kapleau, the Center’s founder, who ordained him in 1976. He has conducted meditation retreats throughout the United States, as well as in Sweden, Mexico, and Germany.

Following the video presentation, there will be time for questions and discussion, and even a chance to hear some of the questions posed by the Chautauqua audience.
