Humble Beginnings

TechnoBuddha was the theme of the first year's conference in 2007 for people who are "grown but not necessarily grown-up," and are interested in Buddhism. The theme was TechnoBuddha because we wanted to focus in on how our generation's experience with technology may affect our experience with Jodo Shinshu Buddhism.

What to Expect

Tasty meals from dinner Friday night through Sunday morning , Saturday full of sessions and socializing, new experiences, and meeting new people.
