Description:
Over the first 4 Saturday afternoons in 2019, Dr. Lye will present the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of "training the mind" (Tib. lojong) by emphasizing an experiential and contemplative approach to the slogans found in the famous classic known as "Training the Mind in Seven Points." Each Saturday will include heart-instructions, short guided contemplations, and Q&A. Dr. Lye’s approach is very clear, practical, unpretentious & relevant to our context here in the West. He’s able to provide a historical and cultural context to the Buddha’s words that deepens our understanding here in the West. Dr. Lye is a rare bridge between cultures as he was born and raised in Asia but has lived and taught for the last twenty years in the US.

Description:
“A Freethinker’s Gospel” will be presented by Chris Highland at the Sunday, January 20, 2019 meeting of the Ethical Humanist Society of Asheville, 2:00-3:30 PM, at Friends Meeting House, 227 Edgewood Road, Asheville, NC. All are welcome to attend. Writer and teacher Chris Highland will be reading and discussing his new book, A Freethinker’s Gospel. It may be a strange and startling title, but the theme of building bridges between people with or without faith permeates the collection of essays. Chris will explore his journey from faith to freethinking and how positive, constructive, inviting and liberating that journey has been. He will also offer his vision for a natural, humanistic way forward based on cooperation and collaboration between believers and nonbelievers.
