AMONGST WHITE CLOUDS:
Buddhist Hermit Masters of China’s Zhongnan Mountains
Presented by Pamela Ayo Yetunde

It was widely thought that the Buddhist hermit tradition was all but wiped out, but this film emphatically and beautifully shows us otherwise. Take an insider’s intimate look at Buddhist students and masters living in scattered retreats dotting China’s Zhongnan Mountain range. These peaks have reputedly been home to Buddhist recluses since the time of the Yellow Emperor, some five thousand years ago. This unusual film takes an unforgettable journey into the hidden tradition of China’s Buddhist hermit monks. One of only a few foreigners to have lived and studied with these elusive practitioners, Edward A. Burger is able, with humor and compassion, to present their tradition, their wisdom, and the hardship and joy of their everyday lives among the clouds.

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our Humanist Tea House
