Engaged Buddhist Festival in Thailand

Posted on

The Engaged Buddhist Festival of Peace and Transformation, organized by the International Network of Engaged Buddhists (INEB), is going on right now in ChiangMai, Thailand. This year marks INEB’s 20th anniversary so it should be quite an event. The conference ends on November 17th with a Peace Walk through the city.

Two people I know are attending — Anchalee Kurutach and Hozan Alan Senauke. I’m hoping to be able to share some of their missives from the meeting on this blog…stay tuned.

About Maia

I've been practicing and studying the Buddha way since 1994, and exploring the question "What is engaged Buddhism?" since the late 90s. As former executive director of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship and editor of its journal, Turning Wheel, I had the honor of meeting and working with many practitioners of engaged dharma, including Roshi Joan Halifax, Joanna Macy, Alan Senauke, and Robert Aitken Roshi. I write about socially engaged Buddhism on my blog, "The Jizo Chronicles," as well as on the theme of personal and collective freedom on my website, "The Liberated Life Project." Through my Five Directions Consulting, I offer support to individuals and organizations who aspire to integrate awareness into their work.
