Male Spirituality // A Buddhist Perspective

“…Jesus and Buddha were talking about a very similar process of human transformation…Buddha taught us how to change our mind about what causes our suffering; Jesus taught us to change our very attitude toward necessary suffering, and that we could make it into a redemptive experience for all concerned.

-Fr. Richard Rohr

Join us for this space away with other men on the spiritual journey. Retreat with us as our Elder and Weaver Gary Burbridge and the Abbott of the Grand Rapids Buddhist Temple lead us in exploring the ways Buddhism offers to enrich our understanding of male spirituality, silent meditation, the role of ritual in Buddhist practice and the many commonalities between Christianity and Buddhism. Small group sharing and time in nature will offer unique opportunities to reveal gifts and insights in ourselves and our group.

The Hermitage, Three Rivers, Michigan  October 9 & 10 7:00 pm Friday to 4:00 pm Saturday

We invite you to join us on this journey of illumination 
as we seek to become Learners and Elders.
