Living the Eightfold Path

Class Series with Devon Rath and Enrique Collazo

Sundays, July 17th through August 21

7:30pm -9pm


“To establish a new responsive relationship to life based on your deepest intentions requires taking a systematic approach to your life.  For this reason the Buddha introduced the Noble Eightfold Path as a way for you to live from a spiritual orientation and to proceed at your own pace toward greater freedom.”-Phillip MoffittIn his first teaching after attaining enlightenment, the Buddha talked about the 4 Noble Truths- that life contains suffering, there are causes for this suffering, there is the possibility of freedom, and a path to end of suffering. This series will explore what it means to walk the path that the Buddha laid out, also known as the Eightfold Path.

The Eightfold Path draws our attention to develop Wisdom, Ethics, and Mindfulness. We will focus on how to use each fold of the path to guide us into creating less suffering and more kindness and equanimity. If you are new to practice or a long time practitioner, this class series is an extremely helpful way to live the teachings in our life, on and off the cushion.
