Event Description

Join us on Saturday, March 3, 2018 for the ESR Spirituality Gathering, Buddhist and Quaker Spiritualities, featuring keynote speaker Sallie King. 

King, a Quaker and Buddhist, is Professor Emerita of Philosophy and Religion at James Madison University and Affiliated Faculty, Professor of Buddhist Studies, Department of Theology, Georgetown University. She is the author, co-editor or translator of numerous works on Buddhism, Engaged Buddhism, Buddhist-Christian dialogue, interfaith dialogue, and the cross-cultural philosophy of religion.

Her keynote presentation will highlight features of Buddhist and Quaker spiritualities, explore similarities and differences, and explore the question of why so many contemporary Quakers have taken Buddhism into their spiritual lives in some way. In addition to her keynote presentation, King will lead a plenary workshop,Buddhist Resources for Engaging the Challenges of Our Time, which will focus particularly on the effort to “be peace” while making peace. 

The day will also include a choice of workshop session, breakfast, and lunch. The cost for the Gathering is $40 per person by February 17th, $50 after February 17th, and $25 for students. Scholarships for Earlham College students are available through the Earlham office of Religious Life.
