Buddhist Chaplaincy: an Overview of Spiritual Caregiving

May 7, 2011
10:00 amto5:00 pm

Saturday May 7, 2011

Chaplains provide spiritual care and support to people in places such as hospitals, hospices, prisons and a wide variety of other settings. The work is wonderfully challenging nad satisfying. In recent years, Dharma practitioners have been experiencing chaplaincy as a powerful opportunity to practice engaged Buddhism, and for some, as a vocation and profession.

Join us for an explanation of this field of service, which is gaining in size and scope in Dharma communities. Professional chaplains and educators will introduce aspects of chaplaincy, including: a definition of chaplaincy, its history, settings, where chaplains serve, and the steps one can take to become a volunteer or professional chaplain (including educational requirements) as a Buddhist practitioner.

Information about the Sati Center’s Buddhist Chaplaincy Training and the Institutes of Buddhist Studies’ Chaplaincy Degree Program will also be provided.

All are welcome!

Co-sponsored by the Institute of Buddhist Studies and the Sati Center and featuring Rev. Daijaku Judith Kinst and Rev. Jennifer Block.

Please contact Rev. Kinst for more information.
