Buddha's Path

Finding Freedom: The Buddha's Essential Teachings

Nov 3 (Thu) - Dec 15 (Thu)
7:00pm - 8:45pm (6 weeks)
Santa Monica
The central teachings of Buddhism include Dependent Co-Arising and Emptiness. In this class, we explore the simple elegance of these two esoteric teachings and how they can be applied to daily life.

This class is an interesting introduction to the Buddha's Teachings because it focuses on why we all continue to have stress (and all the ways to eliminate stress).

This class is appropriate for students with some meditation experience who would like to deepen their practice. Classes will include time for meditation, meditation instruction, teachings and group discussion, and is designed to deepen your practice.

Recommended to students who have some meditation experience, such as the Basics of Mindfulness class or Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction.

Please Note: There will not be class on November 24th.
