Connecting Emotionally With Oneself and Others: Mindfulness and compassion in daily life.
Approaching Buddhist Art with Eric Huntington
A donation-based event.
Two Wednesdays, June 16 & 23, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm CDT
Artwork and visual culture are central to Buddhism, forming not only a core of practice but also a window onto history, philosophy, and more. In this series of two events, Eric Huntington will outline several different approaches to Buddhist art and provide opportunities for interactive discussion about how specific images and objects may be understood in terms of different approaches to religion. By looking at art through lenses of ritual, meditation, philosophy, anthropology, and history, one can understand not only the vast importance of visual culture to Buddhism but also more about Buddhism itself.
