The Class: In this class we will explore together the profound wisdom of the classic sutras that lay the foundations for all of the different Buddhist traditions.
It doesn’t assume any prior knowledge of Buddhism, so it is suitable for beginners as well as those more experienced practitioners wishing to deepen their understanding of the Buddhist path.
Our group explorations will be supported by discussions, meditations, and readings from the book The Buddha’s Dream of Liberation.
Time and Place: Every Thursday night from April 26 through May 31, 6:00 - 7:30 pm at the White Heron Sangha Meditation Center in Avila Village.
