The Academy of Jewish Religion CA Center for Spiritual Resilience will be holding a two-day seminar on March 17 and 18. The first session will deal with navigating religious difference in spiritual care and counseling. Two of the panelists involved in this event have University of the West connections and will represent the Buddhist perspective in the conversation.
Rev. Dr. Pamela Ayo Yetunde was part of the Buddhist Chaplaincy and Religious Studies faculty in 2016 as a Visiting-Scholar-in-Residence, courtesy of a grant from the Frederick P. Lenz Foundation. She recently co-headlined a UWest event discussing her new book Black & Buddhist.
Rev. Dr. Monica Sanford is the Assistant Director of Spirituality & Religious Life at Rochester Institute of Technology. She is also a UWest Master of Divinity in Buddhist Chaplaincy alum and is currently teaching MDIV 607 Research Methods at UWest as a visiting professor.
The AJRCA seminars are a terrific resource, particularly for those pursuing spiritual care and counseling. They are free and open to the public. Registration is available here.
