Process Pop-up: Buddhist Disenchantment & Process Reenchantment

April 8, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT

Facilitated by Doug Holmes

Buddhists have long taught that the spiritual life eventually requires one to become disenchanted with the world. Process thinkers have suggested that to overcome our civilizational ills we need to reenchant the world that modernity has disenchanted. Do we have to choose, or can we have both? We’ll examine some quotes about reenchantment and disenchantment from the process philosopher David Ray Griffin and the Theravadin Buddhist teacher Ajahn Chah. Process thought and Buddhism have a long and fruitful history, but will this drive a wedge between them? Join us for an enchanted hour as we divine into these questions.
