If you would like to receive a structured introduction to Buddhism, this course may be for you! You can attend the entire 12 week course, a 4-week series, or simply drop-in to any class on any week. No commitment needs to be made for the entirety of the course, however, the more classes you attend, the greater benefit you will receive! Success in our meditation practice takes consistency and repetition, so committing to a part or the whole course is encouraged.
Buddha’s teachings are scientific methods for improving our humanity and good qualities through developing our mind.
