Do Buddhism and Veganism Go Hand-In-Hand?
Andrew Bear thinks so! He is an ordained lay student of Vietnamese Buddhist monk, global spiritual leader, and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh. Andrew leads the Silicon Valley chapter of Dharma Voices for Animals, an international organization that encourages the Buddhist community to put its beliefs into action by opposing animal suffering. Join our upcoming webinar to learn about the connection between veganism and Buddhism with our special guest Andrew Bear.
Andrew works as a hospital chaplain, is a board member of the Silicon Valley Interreligious Council (SiVIC), and organizes an annual memorial service for homeless people who died on the streets each year. He also volunteers as a wildlife rehabilitator at the Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley and as a wildlife search and rescue responder with Wildlife Emergency Services.
Andrew shares his perspective on vegan Buddhism our next Vegan Spirituality Online Gathering on Thursday, August 10, 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. PT (8 p.m. – 9 p.m. ET). Participate by phone or online with your hosts “Peace to All Beings” author Judy Carman and In Defense of Animals’ Sustainable Activism Campaign Director Lisa Levinson.
