The final of a six part talk given by Stephen Batchelor in Wellington, New Zealand on 27 February 2012 at St Andrew's on The Terrace.

A critical reflection on the secular transformation of Buddhism as it comes to terms with the challenges of globalisation and modernity, during the final half of the question and answer period, Stephen talks about an emerging secular Buddhist community, renouncing the notion of rebirth, the future he seeks to work towards and the interconnectedness of life.

He is joined at the end by Christian thinker Professor Lloyd Geering who talks about what it means to be completely human from the secular Christian viewpoint.

Stephen Batchelor is a Buddhist teacher and author who lives in Southwest France and conducts meditation retreats and seminars worldwide. He trained as a monk for ten years in traditional Buddhist centres in Asia, and now offers a lay and secular approach to Buddhist practice, largely based on the early teachings of the Buddha that are found in the Pali Canon.
