Online: Skillful Pleasure
with Peter Doobinin
Saturday, March 20th, 2021 | 10:00am – 1:00pm ET

In the new book Skillful Pleasure, Peter Doobinin describes the Buddha’s path for developing skillful pleasure. Pleasure is an integral aspect of human life. But what is our relationship to it? As the Buddha came to discover, we have to learn to establish a skillful relationship to pleasure if dharma practice is going to thrive and if we’re going to know happiness in life.

In this three-hour class, we’ll learn about skillful pleasure, what it is, how we cultivate it, and why there’s such great benefit in doing so.

The class will include meditation, teaching, and discussion. All are welcome to attend.
