Description

Grand Traverse Humanists hosts Jeremy Beahan to presentWhat can modern Secular Humanists possibly learn from ancient Buddhists?

Many Non-Theists who long for a spiritual tradition they can identify with have found inspiration in secularized forms of Buddhist ethics and mental discipline.

Find out more as we explore Buddhist scriptures, philosophy and practice from the emerging perspective of Secular Buddhism.
