Buddhist Christian Dialogue: New Seeds of Contemplation

With dialogue, we continue to explore our spiritual paths, stressing the many areas of collaboration and understanding. This semi-annual series explores the many similarities between these two traditions. Using the ideas and spiritual teaching of the book “New Seeds of Contemplation” by Thomas Merton as a starting point, we will explore why they are still very pertinent to our current time. Participants do not have to have read the book in order to attend.
