With Hoko facilitating and Tonen taking notes, the Buddhist Peace Fellowship met tonight at the Mindfulness Community of Milwaukee. The group, made up of practitioners from several different Buddhist traditions, discussed the four areas of activity that it’s identified for itself:
- facilitating connections between Milwaukee’s Buddhist communities
- raising awareness of Buddhist practice
- making ourselves available to provide a Buddhist perspective on public issues
- offering resources to the larger community on working with issues of social, environmental, and economic justice in ways that accord with the Buddha’s teachings
The next meeting is Tuesday, March 6 from 7 to 8:30 pm, again at the Mindfulness Community. Everyone is welcome.
