Freedom in the Four Noble Truths Online Class Series

Wednesday, January 20, 2021 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Twelve Week Class Series (1/6-3/24)

With Matthew Daniell

Pre-requisite: Ongoing Students

We can approach life with an attitude of seeing the glass half full or half empty.  We can see obstacles or ways ahead.  How we relate to the realities of our life has tremendous implications to the quality of our life and those around us.  The central axis around which the Buddha’s teachings are framed are the Four Noble Truths: Suffering (or discontent), its Cause (unwise clinging and wrong view), inner Freedom, and the Path to realize this possibility. Freedom can be approached in two ways: as something we touch through cultivating the path of calm and insight, and also as something that is inherent in the nature of our minds and hearts that we can simply learn to recognize and become familiar with. 

In this 12 week practice series grounded in the early teachings of the Buddha and inspired by those of Zen, Thich Nhat Hanh, Tibetan, and other wisdom traditions, we will explore the Four Noble Truths with an emphasis on touching freedom in the here and now. This may help us to wake up to a fresher more resilient way of being in our formal practice and daily lives.
