The list of speakers and workshop leaders for August’s UK Buddhist conference, Transforming Conflict, features several members of the Triratna Buddhist Order.
They and the other speakers are among the most eloquent voices in the field of conflict-resolution and mediation. Come and hear them at Taplow Court, one of the UK’s most stunning Buddhist centres, a Jacobean house in acres of parkland on the Thames in Berkshire.
Through workshops, talks, performances and other creative methods, we’ll explore conflict as a powerful opportunity for transformation. Speakers will approach this topic from their own perspectives, drawing on Buddhist ideas and concepts.
Speakers and workshop leaders will include:
• Ken Jones (Network of Engaged Buddhists) “In an age of turmoil: Buddhist-inspired responses to suffering and conflict” • Dharmachari Padmadaka (Karuna Trust) “Beyond prejudice” • Dharmachari Akuppa (Prison chaplain) “Beyond forgiveness” • Dharmacharini Jnanasiddhi – (West Midlands Quaker Peace Education Project) “Understanding and handling conflict: lessons from the classroom • Dharmachari Shantigarbha (Seed of Peace) “Conflict is inevitable, violence isn’t” • Marina Cantacuzino (The Forgiveness Project) “Forgiveness as a tool for change”
