INEB Report

Posted on

There’s a great account of the INEB (International Network of Engaged Buddhists) conference on Wanderingdhamma’s blog. An excerpt:

This past weekend, November 15-17, the International Network of Engaged Buddhism (INEB) held their “Festival of Peace and Social Transformation” in order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the organization. The mornings of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were devoted to panels on key issues of Engaged Buddhism and the organization of INEB. On Friday there were a series of panels dealing with the history of INEB— their successes and failures. Saturday’s panels consisted of key trends in Engaged Buddhism such as economic justice, environmental justice, nationalism and ethnicity, and gender issues. On Sunday panelists discussed the future of Engaged Buddhism and INEB—the vision for the future of the movement with a focus on new programs and youth involvement.

The author of this blog is Brooke Schedneck, a Ph.D. candidate of Asian Religions currently living in Thailand. I look forward to reading more on her excellent blog.

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.
