Dukkha is at the very center of the Buddha's path to liberation from suffering. He said, "I teach one thing and one thing only, Dukkha and the ending of Dukkha." What does this actually mean? And how does it inform how we understand and practice this path? During our time together we will explore those questions as they relate to our practice on and off the cushion, with the aim being able to more fully embrace this important aspect of our lives.
Each meeting will consist of Dharma reflections, small group inquiry, Q&A, and formal meditation practice. Students will be encouraged to practice with particular sub-themes of Dukkha during the time between meetings.
This program is appropriate for both new and experienced meditators of all ages and all levels of experience. Everyone is welcome.
Full and partial scholarships are available.
Note: Class will not meet on Sunday, February 20th.
