Echoes of the Buddha: Essential Teachings for the Modern Meditator
WEDNESDAY EVENINGS, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM Eastern Time
SEPTEMBER 15 - NOVEMBER 17
Meditation has become a mainstream element in modern culture because of the many benefits it brings to mind, body, spirit, and quality of life. Anyone wanting to deepen their meditation can enrich their experience by learning some of the essential points taught by the Buddha.
This course is an experiential study of meditation using some of the Buddha’s original teachings as guidance. We’ll approach our study from a modern psychological perspective with emphasis on how to apply what the Buddha taught in our daily lives.
We’ll explore what he called the Four Noble Truths – condensed guidance on how to free ourselves from unnecessary suffering through meditation, and how to lead a more conscious way of life. We’ll also examine the eight key aspects of his path to ‘enlightenment’ and other topics. These tried and true teachings are of benefit to anyone with a meditation practice. Classes will include meditation, talks, exercises and discussion
Recommended background for this course: This course is designed for meditators with at least one year’s experience with a regular mindfulness practice (3-5 times a week for 20 to 30 minutes) plus completion of two or more of our Foundations Series courses on mindfulness meditation – or equivalent programs elsewhere.
To integrate the learning in this course, we encourage participation in the online retreat, “In the Footsteps of the Buddha” on Saturday November 6.
