April 22, 2018 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am EDT
Dr. Christopher Kelley leads The Buddha’s Revolution: The Ideas and Practices of Buddhism. Dr. Kelley presents the basic beliefs and practices of Buddhism. He includes an explanation of “The Four Noble Truths,” the foundation of Buddhism, and why these truths are so frequently misunderstood in the western world. He will also discuss his personal journey, converting to Buddhism after having been raised and confirmed as a Presbyterian, and why becoming a Buddhist enabled him to achieve a newfound appreciation for Christianity. Dr. Kelley received his PhD in Religion from Columbia University where he studied Indo-Tibetan Buddhism. He currently teaches at Eugene College at The New School University.
