Please note: The start date for this course has been moved to October 15.

The Development of Peace: Basic Teachings of the Buddha

The Buddha first taught the path of individual liberation. In the Four Noble Truths he taught the truth of suffering, the origin of suffering, the cessation of suffering and the path to contentment and freedom. He taught the meditation practice of mindfulness and awareness. This program invites us into the basics of being a dharmic person — an exploration of egolessness, impermanence, gentleness and peace.

This four-week course includes recorded talks, readings, contemplations, and a discussion forum. There will also be one live session with a senior teacher, probably sometime in October, date to be confirmed.
