Living in Peace series focuses on Buddhism

The upcoming Living in Peace: Insights from World Religion discussion will take place at Coastal Carolina University's Lackey Chapel on Wednesday, Feb. 22, at 5 p.m. CCU professor of philosophy and religious studies Ronald Green will lecture on "Buddhism: Sustainability and Peace."

Green will focus on how we can maintain and sustain the treasure heritage that is ours in the earth and in all beings as Buddha-nature. He will describe how Buddhism can help us rewrite the helpful ancient stories about this with modern narratives.

Green is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he received a Ph.D in Buddhist studies. His other areas of study include: East Asian religions, Buddhist scriptures, non-monastic Buddhist practices, meditation traditions and representations of Buddhism in film.

The Living in Peace: Insights from World Religions series is co-sponsored by the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies and The Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values.
