During this event, filmmaker David Grubin will show clips from his new film, The Buddha, and talk about making the film and what he hopes audiences, particularly teachers and students, will take away from it.

Mirabai Bush, Associate Director and Senior Fellow at The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, will speak about using the film to teach about the Buddha’s life and teachings and present research related to the effects of mindfulness on learning. Educator Peter Brown will share his experiences teaching about the Buddha in a Comparative Religion course, and Dr. Amy Saltzman will discuss methods for teaching mindfulness.

Participants will also enjoy a tour of the companion website for the film, including an overview of educational resources
