Part of the Living Traditions Series
Tuesday, October 19 at 7–8 pm EDT (4–5 pm PDT) | Calculate your local time
What is Zen? It is a term most people are familiar with, but for which few are able to find deeper understanding. This religious tradition has influenced not only Japanese culture and spiritual practices immensely, but has also had a significant impact on Western society. At this talk, we invite scholars and practitioners to share their unique perspectives, examining Zen's role and perception in Japan and the West, differences in practices, and the path forward in a post-COVID world. This is the second of the five-part Living Traditions webinar series.
