Living Buddhism or Living Meditation
The Contemplative Studies Initiative and the Office of the Chaplains and Religious Life is pleased to announce "Living Buddhism or Living Meditation: A Workshop" with Roshi Joan Halifax.  This daylong plunge into meditation practice will involve periods of exploration of focused attention and open presence.  Meditation has ben used as well-being practice.  In this day, we will explore meditation as a "ground of being" practice.  

Roshi Joan is a Buddhist teacher, anthropologist, author, and social activist.  She trains health care professionals in many parts of the world in compassionate care of the dying.  She has founded a renowned chaplaincy training program on a Buddhist perspective and systems theory.  She is the director of the Project on Being with Dying and founder and director of the Upaya Prison Project.  A founding teacher of the Zen Peacemaker Order, Roshi Joan's work and practice for more than 4 decades has focused on applied Buddhism.  Her books include: The Human Encounter with Death (with Stanislav Grof); The Fruitful Darkness; Simplicity in the Complex: A Buddhist LIfe in America; and Being with Dying: Cultivating Compassion and Wisdom in the Presence of Death.   She is a Lindisfarne Fellow, and co-director of the Fellowship as well as a Mind and Life board member.
