    Biologist Kriti Sharma will offer a presentation on her new book, Interdependence: Biology and Beyond, Sunday, October 4, 11:00am at the Chapel Hill Zen Center

    The teaching that all phenomena are interdependent is central to all Mahayana Buddhist traditions, including Soto Zen. What does interdependence — or dependent arising — really mean? Do we experience ourselves as thoroughly interdependent with our world — and if not, why not? What habitual, everyday assumptions function as barriers to realizing interdependence, and what happens when we examine and potentially dissolve those assumptions? Kriti Sharma will read from and discuss her new book, Interdependence: Biology and Beyond (Fordham University Press, New York, 2015), with a focus on how a clear and coherent philosophical and scientific view of interdependence can be a support for joy and awakeness in everyday life.
