Note: Due to concerns about Covid-19 safety, we’ve made the decision to move this class series online.
In the Living Dharma class series, we study the traditional Buddhist teachings from the Insight meditation tradition and learn how to apply them to daily life for greater ease, clarity, and well being. In this particular series, we’ll be learning about the development of concentration and tranquility in meditation and in daily life.
Concentration shows up in several of the Buddha’s lists- the eightfold path, the 5 spiritual faculties, and the 7 factors of awakening. It’s an integral component of deepening our practice both on and off the cushion and supports our opening to Insight into the nature of reality. In this class we’ll explore different methods for establishing concentration and tranquility as well as the Buddha’s teachings related to their development.
There will be time for longer meditations, instruction, Dharma talks, small group work, reflections and discussion to deepen learning together in community.
This intermediate class is appropriate for those students with previous meditation experience who have taken a previous mindfulness, Living Dharma, or Buddha’s Path class.
Participants will be strongly encouraged to meditate for at least 30 minutes daily to support the deepening of their understanding.
Please note, this is a class series, not a drop-in group. Please sign up with the intention of attending as many sessions as possible to get the most out of class and to leave space open for other students who would like to commit to the full session.
