Course Overview

Thich Nhat Hanh was a Buddhist monk and Zen master from Vietnam. A poet, writer, teacher, and peace activist, he was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His students knew him affectionately as “Thay” (Vietnamese for teacher). In three class meetings we’ll cover (1) the basics of Buddhism, (2) the history and teachings of Zen, and (3) Thay’s main teachings and practices. We’ll enjoy slide shows, videos, readings, and discussions. No prior knowledge is assumed, but we’ll also go into reasonable depth to interest those with some experience.
