Taking it to heart: Making the Dharma your own

Repeats every week until Mon Feb 25 2019 .
7:00 pm Monday, February 18, 2019

Dharma study is rich with ideas for understanding our lives and how to live them. We can come out of a class with our minds buzzing:

"What about this aspect of karma?"

"Understanding impermanence really helped me come to grips with that loss in my life... I wonder what others took from it."

"I still can't get my mind around emptiness and dependent arising."

Our teachers advise us that discussion and debate are a good method for bringing the teachings alive and weaving them into our thought processes. In these facilitated discussion sessions, we invite everyone --  past and future Discovering Buddhism students and teachers, and anyone else who wants to discuss foundational Buddhist topics in the context of day-to-day practice. Each week will have its own topic as a jumping off point.
