Refund and Event Policies

NOTE August 26th’s class will be 7:30-9pm with Michael Zittel:

August 26th’s Class Format:

  • 7:30-8:15pm Dharma Talk
  • 8:15-8:45pm Guided Meditation
  • 8:45-9pm Optional Q&A

Have you ever found yourself caught in difficult mind states with the uncomfortable feeling that this same experience has happened before, without understanding how you got there or how you might avoid repeating this same pattern again and again? 

According to the Buddha, these cycles of painful repetition are not inevitable. There are lawful steps that lead to freedom from this endless and distressing repetition. 

The Buddha calls these steps, the cycle of Liberative Dependent Origination, a lawful progression that starts with suffering and ends with liberating understanding and a release from suffering.

When we are familiar with the 12 links of Liberative Dependent Origination, it is a valuable support for releasing the fears, fixations and destructive distortions in our mind and a powerful ally in finding freedom from ignorance.

“This little discourse, (Liberative Dependent Origination) turns out upon repeated examination to be of tremendous doctrinal importance.” Bikkhu Bodhi

Join senior teachers Beth Sternlieb and Allen Weiss for this 6 week series. We will explore these ancient traditional practices as powerful medicine in our modern world and everyday life. 

Class meets from 7:00 – 8:15 PM. There will be an optional Q&A and group discussion from 8:15-8:45pm.

Join us for one class or all six for the best cumulative effect.

6-Class Series: $180
