The Buddhist Chaplaincy Support Group (Kalyana Mitra) presents:

“Living the Dharma in the Crazy Modern World”
A Conversation with Julian Daizan Skinner Roshi

Wednesday 30th March 2011 6.30pm at The Buddhist Society.
Suggested Donation - £10

This is the first in a series of fundraising talks with notable Buddhists which will discuss how best we – as lay practitioners – can try and put the dharma into effect when faced with all the demands of modern life. What is Right Livelihood? How should the concept of Shunyata affect your average day at work? Should Buddhists be vegetarian and teetotal? How do we deal with our work, families and personal relationships? How do you fit a meditation practice into our busy lives? Come and join the discussion. There will be plenty of opportunity for the audience to ask questions and discuss issues.

Julian Daizan Skinner is a Zen Roshi and frequent contributor to the Buddhist Society. He spent many years in Japan studying and has received dharma transmission in both the Rinzai and Soto traditions, as well as inka and permission to teach from Shinzan Miyamae Roshi of Gyokuryuji temple He is the head of the Zenways organisation and also a Yoga Teacher.
