Introduction to Chaplaincy with Diane Wilde, Alistair Shanks, Gesshin Greenwood and Jennifer Lemas
Saturday, May 30, 9:30am to 12:30pm
A half-day overview of a chaplain’s work of providing spiritual care and support for people in hospitals, hospices, prisons, and a wide variety of other settings. In recent years, Buddhist practitioners have been experiencing chaplaincy as a powerful opportunity to practice engaged Buddhism, and for some, as a profession. Information about the Sati Center’s Buddhist Chaplaincy Training and the Institute for Buddhist Studies Chaplaincy Degree Program will be provided.
