YBE is thrilled to invite you to this free online retreat, inspired by the recently published book Be the Refuge: Raising the Voices of Asian American Buddhists. We are delighted to feature author Chenxing Han alongside many other presenters and panelists for this exciting half-day event. Come prepared to participate in interactive sessions inspired by the four parts of Be the Refuge: Trailblazers, Bridge-Builders, Integrators, and Refuge Makers. The retreat is open to people of all backgrounds. We hope our time together can deepen connections and build friendships within and beyond our Buddhist communities.
In order to build a stronger sense of community for our retreat, we kindly ask participants to commit to attending the entire event (10am–3pm PT). If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
In addition to our opening and closing sessions, we’ll enjoy four main sessions together:
(I) Trailblazers: The Deep Roots of Asian American Buddhism
(II) Bridge-Builders: Show & Tell with Second-Gen Buddhists
(III) Integrators: A Panel with BIPOC Convert Buddhists
(IV) Writing Workshop on Anger, Privilege, and Solidarity
