    Room: Library or other space

    What's it like to be a Buddhist chaplain? How do you offer skillful aid to people at the end of life? What kinds of changes might you experience from decades of practice? In this conversation, meet Elaine Yuen, one of the earliest members of Philadelphia Shambhala, who has applied her decades of practice in meaningful roles including Buddhist chaplain and scientific researcher. Now faculty at Naropa University in Boulder, CO, she will be offering Shambhala Art 4 & 5 in Philadelphia, so we wanted to take the opportunity to learn more about what she's thinking and teaching these days. 

    Elaine Yuen, ordained in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition, is a Senior Teacher within the Shambhala mandala, and Associate Professor and former Chair of the Wisdom Traditions Department at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado.  She teaches courses on spirituality and ritual, Buddhism, and pastoral care, and has been a member of the International Shambhala Diversity working group.
