He will lead a workshop entitled “Practices of Peace and Nonviolence” from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in the church’s Kathie Stuart Room.

A decorated combat veteran, he began the study of Buddhism after a period of addiction and homelessness, and in 1995 was ordained in the Japanese Soto Zen tradition.

Today he teaches and speaks throughout the United States, Europe, and South America as a promoter of peace and nonviolence in the effort to address the repetitive cycles of war and violence. He is also the author of “At Hell’s Gate — A Soldier’s Journey from War to Peace.

The workshop is free and open to the public (donation suggested). For more information, contact Duncan Hilton or call Hancock Church at 781-862-4220.
