Tibetan nun to speak at NIC about forgiveness

The venerable Thubten Chodron, an American nun in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, will speak about “The Freedom of Forgiveness” from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 10 in Molstead Library Todd Hall on North Idaho College’s main campus.

Chodron will discuss exploring ways to recognize and relieve anger, resentment and guilt. Drawing from her book “Working with Anger,” Chodron will focus on ways to replace negative emotions with a more loving heart.

Chodron teaches Buddhist philosophy and meditation worldwide and has published numerous books. She was ordained a nun in the Tibetan tradition in 1977 and has practiced under the guidance of the Dalai Lama and other Tibetan masters in both India and Nepal.

The event is sponsored by the NIC Diversity Events Committee and Life Center Therapies. It is free and open to the public.
