Ehipassiko — Come and See for Yourself
Core Dharma—Awakening to Investigation: The awakening factor of investigation and the Foundations of Mindfulness
Mondays: February 10, 17, 24; March 10
February 10, 2014
07:00 pm - 09:00 pm
Among the Factors of Awakening as presented by the Buddha in the Foundation of Mindfulness, is the factor of Investigation. It is this factor that in many ways is the crux of mindfulness practice as we bring curiosity to our moment-to-moment experience. This class will explore what exactly is being investigated and how investigation relates to the other aspects of the Foundation of Mindfulness, the Four Noble Truths and very directly to how we live life.
This is a Core Dharma class geared toward those who have competed a Beginners class (or equivalent), and have knowledge of the Four Noble Truths and Eightfold Path. If you have a question as to whether the class is appropriate for you, please ask.
This course is not available for drop-in attendance.
Please note: Course fee includes teacher support.
