Talk by Ben Connelly @ ZDS: Inside Vasubandhu's Yogacara

Ben Connelly, a Soto Zen teacher from the Minnesota Zen Meditation Center, will deliver a public talk on the Yogacara teachings from his new book, Inside Vasubandhu's Yogacara. The book is a practical, down-to-earth guide to Vasubandhu's classic work "Thirty Verses of Consciousness-Only" that can transform modern life and change how you see the world. Connelly's warm and wise voice shows us how we can apply its ancient insights to our own modern lives, to create a life of engaged peace, harmony, compassion, and joy. A donation of $10 is suggested, but nobody will be turned away for lack of funds.

Ben also will be offering a workshop entitled "Yogacara and engaged compassion: Awareness of emotion and interdependence" on Sat, May 13 from 1-4 pm at Sky Island Zen.
