An Evening Chat with Venerable Thubten Chodron interviewed by Vicki McKenzie
Saturday, October 5
7:00 – 8:30 pm
Come and spend a Saturday evening with Venerable Thubten Chodron, a remarkable woman and role-model for many: one of the first-generation Western nuns ordained in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition; founder of a thriving monastic community in Washington State, USA; best-selling author of many Buddhist books.
Interviewed by Vicki MacKenzie, journalist and best-selling author, this evening chat will be informal, incisive and fun. Find out about Venerable Chodron’s joys and struggles as a Western nun; her thoughts on the relevance of monastic life in the 21st century; how being an abbess of a growing monastic community has changed her and what she’s learned from it; what it’s like to have studied with the Dalai Lama for over forty years. And much more.
