Walter Mason will talk on The Zen of Jane at the Jane Austen Society of Australia in Sydney, Saturday June 16, 2018

“Zen of Jane” talk at Jane Austen Society of Australia  - Sydney  – 16 June, 2018 

Sydney meetings are held at the Uniting Church Hall, 7 Lord Street, Roseville NSW

They start at 2pm, and it's a good idea to get there a little early because they can fill up.

“The Zen of Jane: Buddhist Lessons from the Books of Jane Austen” - Walter Mason

A novel and enlightening look at Jane Austen as Zen master. How do we look at literature through new filters, and what does a nineteenth century writer who probably never thought about Buddhism have to teach us about matters of mindfulness? Walter Mason, author and spiritual tourist, looks at how far Buddhist thought had entered Austen’s era and how reading her might prove thoughtful lessons in wisdom, quietness and loving kindness. 
When: Sat June 16 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
My talk only goes for about an hour, but there are other items on the program, and a delicious afternoon tea. 
Non-members are always welcome!!!
