An Evening with Larry Yang

Friday March 27


Santa Monica


Larry Yang will be joining us for the Friday evening class, Living the Suttas. The suttas are the discourses where the teachings of the Buddha are recorded. They are a rich tapestry of teachings and stories which make the practice come alive. Larry will be teaching on The Culagosinga Sutta which is a teaching about living together in harmony, “blending like milk and water”.

Larry teaches meditation nationally, and has spent much energy to deepen Dharma teachings within multicultural communities. Larry is the Guiding Teacher of Insight Community of the Desert. He is on the Teachers’ Council and the Board at Spirit Rock Meditation Center, and is a core teacher of East Bay Meditation Center (EBMC) in Oakland, CA.  Larry is trained as a psychotherapist and has spent six months as a Buddhist monk in Thailand. He considers retreat practice, family practice, livelihood practice, and householder practice all integral to a spiritual path towards Freedom.  He is trained and authorized to teach by Jack Kornfield at Spirit Rock and the Venerable Ajahn Tong of Wat Chom Tong in Thailand. He is one of the teachers who coordinates the Community Dharma Leadership training program cultivating future leadership in the dharma.

This class is a drop-in, dana class and no registration is necessary.
