Introduction to Buddhism

Wednesdays | 7 – 8pm | September 27 - December 20. (No class Wednesday Oct 11)

In this Wednesday night series we will explore why 2,500 years after the passing of Buddha, his message continues to resonate with our modern busy daily life. Using ‘Introduction to Buddhism: An Explanation of the Buddhist Way of Life' by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’ as our tour guide we will investigate who was Buddha and what did he teach? We will also begin to unpack how important Buddhist Psychology is as a compass for navigating our modern busy life. This series will be enjoyable and meaningful. Drop-in to any classes that work for your schedule. Everyone Welcome. Includes Guided Meditation a talk and time for Q&A.
