Online: Back to Basics to Strengthen Your Practice
with Bart van Melik
Fridays, September 3rd-24th, 2021 | 9:00am – 10:30am ET
The Buddha taught us to live in harmony with the way things are and to awaken to the truth of suffering and how to end it. This might sound like a lofty goal – especially in the midst of a global pandemic.

However it can be very supportive to practice the most basic instructions the Buddha gave: to fully know of what it’s like to be human in every moment.

Step by step during this online course, we’ll look at the Buddha’s teachings on welcoming ALL of our experiences – even the presence of challenging emotions. This course will offer empowering instructions enabling us to know the immediate truth of our experience which is so worthy of our application.

Beginners and experienced practitioners are welcome.
