Joan Oliver interviews Bernie Glassman on the Symposium for Socially Engaged Buddhism

From August 9th to 14th, 2010, the Zen Peacemakers will be hosting “The First Symposium for Western Socially Engaged Buddhism”, in Montague, MA.  It will be a gathering of leading Western activist practitioners, sponsors, and academics in this ever-important and growing field.

Throughout the coming months, we at Tricycle will be posting a series of video interviews with prominent figures from the world of Socially Engaged Buddhism, beginning with this one with Bernie Glassman, who is a pioneer of the movement, founder of the Zen Peacemaker order, and co-organizer of the symposium.
