Thursday Mornings @ the Center

The Buddha lived as a fully awakened being.  In many of the teachings, it seems that the Buddha’s followers (sometimes thousands!) became enlightened upon hearing a single teaching.  The third Noble Truth states that there is an end to suffering.  What is awakening, what is enlightenment, what is nibbanna?  This class will explore what the Buddha taught about Awakening as well how it is described and taught in later traditions.  Most important, we will explore our own momentary experiences of awakening, and the obstacles that prevent it.

Registration does not include teacher support/teacher dana.

Teacher support: Suggested starting donation is $15 per session but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.  All donations go to support the teacher(s).
