Book talk at USC in LA
Hope to see you at a free book talk at USC Shinso Ito Center for Japanese Religions and Culture, October 1, noon, East Asian Seminar Room, 101C, Doheny Memorial Library, University Park Campus in LA. I'll be just returning from Kamakura and Koyasan in Japan where I've been actively involved in a dynamic movement integrating Zen and other forms of Buddhist practices with the art and science of Mindfulness. Some leaders in Buddhist communities are stressing the need for more flexibility and less emphasis on strict rituals in their practices while some social scientists like me are drawn to learning from the rich cultural tradition and deep wisdom in Buddhism.
