The Buddhist Channel, Oct 10, 2017
HOUSTON, TX (USA) -- Dawn Mountain Center for Tibetan Buddhism hosted their celebratory symposium, Beyond Hard Knocks: Creative Buddhist Voices on Learning from Experience, on September 15 and 16, 2017 to illuminate the art of being mindful amidst today's chaos.
<< Five experts in religion presented on modern spiritual practice at Rice University
The symposium was held at Rice University, bringing together five experts in Buddhism and religion. Speakers emphasized how to maintain balance while facing challenge in the hopes that their guidance could provide comfort and clarity.
The event's meaningfulness to Houstonians was heightened due to the surrounding tumult caused by Hurricane Harvey.
Over two days replete with meditation, engagement and questioning, the symposium developed a compelling dialogue about modern day spiritual practice that audience members found deeply moving and profound.
The Center acts as a living bridge between traditional Tibetan Buddhist teachings and curious people everywhere. 'Beyond Hark Knocks' embodied the principles of community and connectedness cherished by Dawn Mountain. Speakers Marcia Brennan, Guy Newland, Ken McLeod, Daniel Cozort and Sarah Jacoby discussed their subjects separately and in dialogue.
