Online: Right View, Wise View, Beautiful View, No View
with Jon Aaron
Thursdays, October 1st – November 5th, 2020 | 10:00am – 12:00pm ET

This very first factor of the Noble Eightfold Path, Right View (Samma Ditthi) is crucial for both our individual and societal awakening. It propels us onto the path, and helps us to return to the practice and to clarity when we stray.

Right view starts with the simple understanding of how to live a wholesome life, and then becomes a direct seeing into the three qualities of existence—dukkha, anicca, and anatta, followed by the embodied knowing of these qualities. How do we then live from this place?

How do we move from a vision to sustainable transformation? How do we integrate Right View into our lives, and impact the world around us? In this six-week course we will take a deep dive into Samma-Ditthi, considering various suttas and their interpretations, and how this aspect of the Dharma evolved in later Buddhist traditions.

Each class will involve guided meditation, a dharma talk and discussion.

Participants should have completed at least an Insight 101/ beginner class and have a basic understanding of the Four Noble Truths.
