Refund and Event Policies

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. 

The focus for this class will be how we can apply the Buddha’s teachings to live a more joyful, wakeful, and meaningful life. In learning to turn towards the 4 noble truths the Buddha taught, we will explore ways to transform suffering here and now and explore aspects of the noble eightfold path- in particular the practices of wise view and wise action in our daily lives. The cultivation of clear seeing and wisdom is just as important today as it was thousands of years ago and we can all find creative ways to apply these teachings to our current conditions- for ourselves and the greater collective.

There will be time for longer meditations, instruction, Dharma talks, small group work, reflections and discussion to deepen learning together in community.

If you’d like additional reading for the class you can reference or purchase the book “Dancing with Life” by Phillip Moffitt (not required).

Participants will be strongly encouraged to meditate for at least 30 minutes daily to support the deepening of their understanding.

This is a 4 week 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.
