Institute of Buddhist Studies Buddhist Chaplaincy Program Open House and Orientation: Saturday May 23rd, Berkeley, California

The Institute of Buddhist Studies will host an Open House and orientation for their new Buddhist chaplaincy program. The IBS has affiliate programs at the Sati Center and the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care. I am an IBS alumni and will be presenting in the late morning on military chaplaincy. There will be opportunities to meet the IBS faculty and a look at facilities at the Jodo Shinshu Center in Berkeley, CA. The program is below. Hope anyone who is interested can attend!
