Buddhist psychology began over 2,000 years before western psychology, and over the generations it has developed unparalleled depth and sophistication. In this four-week class, we explore the Buddhist understanding of the mind and, most importantly, how that understanding can guide us on the path of liberation.
Our group explorations will be supported by discussions, meditations, and readings.
The class is given without charge, but dana is welcomed.
