Dharma talk with author Maia Zenyu Duerr: The Dharma of Right Livelihood

November 4 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm


In this dharma talk, based on Maia’s book Work That Matters, we will explore traditional Buddhist teachings on right livelihood as well as how those teachings translate to our contemporary world of work. Maia will share the Six Keys to Liberation-Based Livelihood and talk about how to apply them to the questions such as, “What is our work to do?” and “How can our work be most wholesome for ourselves, as well as providing service to the world?”

After the dharma talk you’re welcome for a potluck, to meet Maia.
