Tuesdays 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
This weekly drop-in group is for anyone, from beginner to advanced, who is interested in the wisdom teachings of the Buddha. Each class will feature a talk by class facilitator Jeremy Graves about dharma and the spiritual path, a meditation period, and an opportunity for questions and discussion. We will explore how this path of meditation, morality, and insight leads not only to greater effectiveness and peace of mind, but ultimately to complete freedom from the habitual thoughts and behaviors that make us unhappy. This class will help give you the toolkit you need to achieve the freedom that the Buddha talked about. Our perspective on spiritual practice will be pragmatic and scientifically-informed - after all, extraordinary claims require require extraordinary evidence - but we will also keep an open-minded attitude to the possibilities of personal transformation.
