To study the Buddha way is to study the self.
To study the self is to forget the self.
To forget the self is to be enlightened by all things.

Making Peace: The World as One Body

Workshop with Roshi Bernie Glassman

(co-author, with Jeff Bridges, of New York Times Bestseller The Dude and The Zen Master)



With talks that are equal parts touching and humorous, Bernie Glassman’s workshop will inspire you to live a life that matters by bearing witness to the wholeness of human experience. Bernie communicates decades of experience in down-to-earth language that connects with people of all backgrounds. As he teaches us to “make the best meal using the ingredients available,” he often includes the ingredients of each workshop: the participants. Starting with the questions of each particular crowd, he crafts a presentation unique to each group. Bernie will ruffle your feathers and send you off ready to take action to create a more compassionate world.

Bernie’s shares insights from:

  • Studying and teaching Zen for over 50 years
  • Leading Bearing Witness Retreats on the streets and Auschwitz
  • Initiating social enterprises and non-profits
  • Clowning in refuge camps
  • Peace work in the Middle East
