The Costs of War
FREE Public Talk
Saturday, April 30, 2011
8:00 p.m.-9:30 p.m.
Omega Institute hosts FREE public talk and book signing with Claude AnShin Thomas, veteran and author of At Hell’s Gate: A Soldier’s Journey from War to Peace.
A Vietnam veteran, Thomas witnessed horrifying cruelty, narrowly escaped death on multiple occasions, and was responsible for the deaths of many people. After the war he turned to meditation and mindfulness practice, studying in the monastery of Thich Nhat Hanh, to help him “make peace with the unpeacefulness” of war and its legacy. Join us for this public talk and hear about one soldier’s journey to end suffering for himself and others.
“We who have fought in war know intimately about life and death.
We who have been wounded by war—physically, psychologically, and
spiritually—need to come together in order to support each other.”
—Claude AnShin Thomas
