Vesak Celebration

Sunday May 16th

2:00pm-4:00pm

Online

The BCIMS community will gather on May 16 to celebrate Vesak, the traditional Buddhist celebration of the birth, awakening, and death of the Buddha. We’ll share this story of the Buddha, and also look at some of the beginnings and endings in our own lives: what have we said goodbye to and what are we welcoming in. There will be time for interaction within the community in small groups, and we'll share a video compilation of reflections from the community. You might want to bring a poem or reflection to share that represents an ending, a beginning or both. We hope to see you there!

We'll be gathering on Zoom. You'll get an email with the link shortly before the event.

BCIMS teachers James Lowe, Rachel Lewis, and Adrianne Ross will be hosting.
