Jesus and the Buddha: Meditation, Prayer, and the Human Potential
Sat Noon | Landing
Bushi is a name well known throughout The Wild Goose Festival with his beginnings as a novice Buddhist monk at Shakori Hills, North Carolina. Former Christian minister-turn-Zen Buddhist monk, Bushi Yamato Damashii knows how to connect the dots, and helps the Christian to understand the ‘human/mental element of faith”. Bushi returns to WGF 2018 and shares Jesus and the Buddha: Meditation, Prayer, and the Social Potential of Being the Change. This is a serious conversation on liberating oneself of the mental, religious, and social contaminations that devour and stagnate our abilities to be happy, socially altruistic, and compassionate beings. Bushi will offer both guided and independent meditation experiences and dialogue for the attendees. Daily walking meditations will be available with Bushi and other monks present. Participants will engage in mindfulness and compassion activities throughout the WGF.
