Empty, Emptying, and Emptiness in the Liberating Insight of the Buddha

A Morning with Gil Fronsdal

We’re delighted to offer the opportunity to spend time with a senior teacher from our tradition as he reflects on one of the most central (and often misunderstood) aspects of the Buddha’s teaching: emptiness. Please join us for this special event.

Cost: This special program is offered on a dana (donation) basis. Please RSVP here.

He has been teaching since 1990. Gil has practiced Zen and Vipassana since 1975 and has a Ph.D. in Buddhist Studies from Stanford.
