The Rubin is transforming. Read important updates from our Executive Director.

The scandals rocking the world’s religions””including Buddhism””can make us question the very nature of spiritual authority: What purpose does it serve? How can we stop its abuses?

Join us for a provocative discussion of this timely and important issue curated by Lion’s Roar. Leading Buddhist teachers Gina Sharpe and Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara join in conversation with psychoanalyst Pilar Jennings to break down the benefits and pitfalls of the teacher-student relationship and offer new models for the future.

This is the first of three panel discussions with Lion’s Roar this year at the Rubin Museum. The series will offer a Buddhist perspective on important issues of our time.
