Meditation and Interfaith day

Venue: St Ambrose’s Catholic Church Community Centre, 287 Sydney Road, Brunswick.

Details: Shared lunch, tea/coffee provided. Suggested donation $20

Facilitator: Ruth Fowler

Theme: Salvation or Enlightenment?

Using a videoed dialogue between Tibetan Buddhist, Dr Alan Wallace and Benedictine monk, Fr Laurence Freeman, we will explore these understandings. Are Salvation and Enlightenment the same? If so, at what level do – or can – different traditions achieve sameness? Vital as these questions are to good dialogue and mutual understanding, both agree it is in the practice of meditation that the real answers are experienced. The day will therefore include extracts from their talks and discussions, group discussion and times of meditation.

Later Event: May 18
