This six month class series is accessible way to begin reading the suttas while building and being supported by a community. We will use The Buddha’s Teachings on Social and Communal Harmony edited by Bhikkhu Bodhi as a primary text and will supplement the exploration of the suttas with talks, articles and personal exploration. This will allow us to deepen our understanding of the Buddha’s teachings and see how we can apply them directly to our 21st Century life.
This class is intended for any level of practitioner who is interested in applying the early teachings of the Buddha to modern life
