Buddhism, Ecology, Community
On April 20th, the Seattle Betsuin is hosting an EcoSangha seminar on what it means to be part of an EcoSangha.
Being a Buddhist means being a conservationist and an ecologist

It will start with a short morning service and welcome message at 9:30am and will run throughout the day with varying speakers and workshops until 4:30 in the afternoon. The day will close out with George Draffan of the NorthWest Dharma Association mediating a discussion on Buddhism and Ecology.
Lunch will be included in the cost of your registration and there will be a discounted price for students. The cost to register is as follows
$25 – Adults

You may register online here. Or you can download and print the registration forms and drop them off at the temple office with cash or a check. Registration closes on April 15th.
This is a great opportunity for people and Buddhist’s of different groups and denominations to gather together for discussion on a topic that affects everyone. We urge you to join us for an awesome day where we can all share our thoughts and widen our world views.
