4 WEEK CLASS: October 22 – November 12
7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
with Sosan Theresa Flynn
This class will provide an overview of some of the fundamental teachings of Zen Buddhism. We’ll explore the three treasures of Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, looking at what they mean, their impact on our lives, and why we consider them treasures. We’ll learn about karma, acknowledging the effect of actions from the ancient past and our our current life, and exploring the role of repentance in Buddhism. Finally, we’ll study and practice the four Bodhisattva vows, the great vows we chant every Sunday that may seem like impossible tasks, but actually provide a roadmap for our lives: saving all beings, abandoning all delusions, receiving spiritual teachings in every moment, and attaining the way of supreme wisdom.
Each class will include meditation, a dharma talk and discussion. The emphasis will be on the place of these fundamental teachings in our everyday lives.
