Study Group Description

Our year-long, monthly study group will focus on "The Eightfold Path," the Buddha's explicit instructions on the path to end suffering. This essential teaching includes a three-fold training:

  • Training in ethics and the commitment to do no harm

  • Training in widsom and compassion

  • Training in the heart/mind

Each month there will be reading assignments, as well as some reflections for your daily practice. We're asking you to commit to a daily practice and to attend all monthly meetings (extenuating circumstances aside).

Topics will include: 

Wise View, Wise Intention, Wise Speech, Wise Action, Wise Livelihood, Wise Effort, Wise Mindfulness, and Wise Concentration.

Cost:  Suggested donation of $20/class (optional and not required).  All donations/money raised will be given to charities that are collectively agreed on at the end of the year.

We actively welcome participants of all racial and cultural identities/backgrounds, nationalities, sexual orientations, gender identities, religious backgrounds, marital status, family structure, age, mental and physical health, political perspective and/or class status.

*Enrollment is required to attend. Please fill out an application prior to our first meeting, March 26, 2020.
