Secular Buddhism for UUs?

Presenter Drew Oman

Wednesday, October 13⋅7:00 – 8:15pm

What might Secular Buddhism have to say to Unitarian Universalists?

In this class Drew will define what he means by the term “Secular Buddhism” and then use that lens to explore some of the central tenets of traditional (Theravada/Vipassana) Buddhism. Among them will be the Three Characteristics: impermanence, suffering, no-self; the Three Poisons: greed, hatred, delusion; the Four Noble Truths, and the Eightfold Path.  He will then reflect on how this might speak to members of the audience.

Presenter Bio:

I was raised low-church Episcopalian, took my first course on Buddhism as an undergraduate in the early 70s, and initiated into TM (Transcendental Meditation) at about the same time. After graduation I started attending Quaker Meeting, which I did with less and less frequency over the years as I explored various other “spiritualities” in the 80s. I turned to Buddhist meditation practice when I met my future spouse, Ed Haertel, in 1991, and we’ve been meditating and studying Buddhism ever since.
