Gabriola Ecumenical would like to introduce this online event which may be of interest to some of our members.

December 1-2, 2020 | RSVP Required

Contemplative practices and religious experiences are at the core of much of religious life in both Buddhist and Christian religious life. Yet, they are often overlooked in the academic study of these religions and in religious studies generally.

In the December 1 session, four panellists will present papers that examine these overlooked dimensions of contemplative practices such as Buddhist meditation and Christian contemplation within a dialogical and comparative framework of religious experience in interreligious perspective.

The December 2 panel will engage in a roundtable discussion about diverse patterns of religious life in terms of religious ideals, praxes, and social organization in Buddhist Christian dialogical context to gain new insights into the strengths and weaknesses of natal versus convert religious belonging, as well as the interaction between these demographics.
