This is the second of two series on the book Modern Buddhism: The Path of Compassion and Wisdom by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Students do not need to have attended the first series in order to enjoy this series.
During this series, Linda Atkinson will show how we can understand Buddha’s very first teaching, the oft-misunderstood Four Noble Truths. The Four Noble Truths encourages everyone to follow true paths to inner freedom and peace. During the second half of the series, Linda Atkinson will explain how to practice this path, known as the Six Perfections, within the context of our hectic daily life.

Each class will begin with a brief guided meditation, followed by a short teaching. There will be time at the end of class for question and answer and/or discussion. Drop in for any class — no need to attend each class. Everyone is welcome.
