Now Online: Back to Basics to Strengthen Your Practice

with Bart Van Melik

Fridays, May 8th – May 29th, 2020 | 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 this global pandemic.

Therefore 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 we’ll look at the Buddha’s teachings on welcoming ALL of our experiences – even the presence of greed, hatred and confusion. 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.
