Deepening Your Practice Yearlong

Jan 5 (Thu) - Dec 28 (Thu)
7:00AM - 8:30AM
Santa Monica
This is a course offering for intermediate and advanced practitioners. Students enrolled in this class should have an established daily sitting practice in order to get the most out of the teaching and class discussion.

Each class will include meditation, dharma talk and discussion.

Trudy will be teaching with inspiration from the following books:

A Path with Heart, by Jack Kornfield

Heartwood of the Bodhi Tree by Buddhadassa Bhikkhu

The Spirit of the Buddha by Martine Batchelor

The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching by Thich Nhat Hanh

Buddhist Practice on Western Ground by Harvey B. Aronson

Trudy recommends these books but it's not necessary to purchase them or to do any reading to participate in DYP.
