Lent is a season of introspection and reflection. During this time, Christians are encouraged to consider how they have estranged themselves from God and how they might turn back to a faithful and holy life.
Shifting our attention from the distractions of our daily lives to the presence of the sacred within us can aid us in the deepening of our connection to the divine. But this is easier said than done.
The Mindfulness practices of Buddhism can help us become more aware of what is arising in the mind to distract us. Referred to as Mind Training, Buddhism offers a coherent method for ordering the mind, bringing peace, and enhancing compassionate wisdom.
Join Buddhist teacher, Rev. Dr. Isa Gucciardi, as she explores what Buddhism can teach Christians about the Season of Lent. The session will be hosted by Christian minister, Rev. Cameron Trimble, and include a dialogue between these two faith leaders to deepen our experience of presence.
