With the Four Noble Truths set out in his first discourse, the Buddha laid out his path of spiritual maturity. These “truths” are really directives for action, invitations to a way of compassion, a way of walking with an open heart. Do we see the suffering the Buddha addressed and can we glimpse the way of clarity and compassion he pointed to with this earliest statement of his teaching? This is the exploration we will undertake together.

This class is an important early step for Buddhist study and practice, and a valuable immersion in the core teaching for practitioners at any level of experience.
