INNER PEACE & WORLD PEACE: Nonviolence & Buddhist Meditation - A lecture by Alan Senauke

Is it important for the peace activist to cultivate inner peace? To reduce violence in the world, do we need to develop nonviolence in ourselves? Hozan Alan Senauke has extensive experience in both the inner and outer pursuit of peace. Meditation teacher, Vice-abbot of Berkeley Zen Center, writer, folk musician, and activist for peace and justice, Alan Senauke has practiced Zen Buddhism for over 35 years. He founded Clear View Project to support engaged Buddhist action for social change and relief; serves as Senior Advisor to the Buddhist Peace Fellowship; and is the author of two books: The Bodhisattva’s Embrace: Dispatches from Engaged Buddhism’s Front Lines and Heirs to Ambedkar: The Rebirth of Engaged Buddhism in India.
