The Four Noble Truths are the cornerstone of awakening in the Buddhist tradition. In this four-week course, Sharon will explore these ancient teachings for their practical application in modern life. Drawing from classical Buddhist teachings, the course is comprised of four evenings in which we will explore each of the noble truths. Each week of the course features an in-depth discourse, guided meditations, and question/answer periods. It is recommended that this course be taken as a series; however, students can also attend each separate sessions individually. Please note: beginning meditation instruction will not be offered in this course.
