What do you do when your child wakes up sick or frightened during the night? Is caring for your child a Christian or Buddhist response? At the time, does it matter to the child what you believe or what you do? What helps you to “see clearly and act well?” We’ll look at how Christians and Buddhists use very similar techniques of contemplative prayer and meditation to help overcome their attachment to “I, my, me” and make their spiritual teachings a living part of their daily existence.
Speaker Terry Cronin, JDPSN, started practicing Zen and Christian contemplation in 1980 while a student at Yale Divinity School. Since 1986, he has trained in the Kwan Um School of Zen. He received inka from Zen Master Soeng Hyang in April 2014, and is Guiding Teacher of the Northern Light Zen Center in Topsham, Maine. For over 20 years he has worked in a variety of roles for hospice programs and currently serves as a hospice chaplain.
