On February 23, fellow Gabriolans, Robbie Huston, Mary Wilson, who both have had a long-standing commitment to the Buddhist path, share their experiences of following the Zen Buddhist tradition. They introduced the basics of Buddhism, gave a quick history of how Zen Buddhism came to the west, talked about their own practices, and how they influence their everyday life. An inspiring presentation followed by tea and conversation.
This Year’s Theme
Celebrating 20 Years of Spiritual Questing, Welcoming Future Growth
Ecumenical is derived from the Greek word Oikoumene, which means the whole inhabited world; in this sense, the Gabriola Ecumenical Society embraces all expressions of spirituality.
Spiritual connection is a universally human trait, though practices vary around the world and even among individuals of the same belief system. GES has always looked to Unity in Diversity and Spiritual Inclusivity as guideposts in our programming.
