Living the Suttas

June 23, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm PDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:30pm on Friday, repeating until September 28, 2018

This class is an exploration of the core teachings of Theravada Buddhism. Each week a different sutta (Buddhist teaching) is examined for its relevance to modern contemplative life. Often times the suttas are intimidating, this class seeks to demystify the core teachings and make them accessible to today’s practitioner. Although we study the suttas, this is not an academic class; it is an attempt to examine the basic core teachings and to see how we can engage with them in our meditation practice, our lives as lay practitioners, and in the world at large.

The Friday night class is the perfect way to put your week into perspective and to sit with dedicated practitioners; it is an opportunity to deepen and engage your practice with community through meditation and reflection. Come sit with us and explore how you can bring the core teachings into your life.
