Relating Revolution:  Healing Shame & Trauma around Racism

Facilitated by Meenal Kelkar

Sunday, July 12, 1:00 – 4:00 pm (via ZOOM)
Priceless Pricing* (see below)

As a heart-centered mindful person, do you feel defensive or confronted by the terms “racism” and “privilege”? I get it. I too felt stirred up, agitated, annoyed, angry, upset, misunderstood and many other emotions and judgments.  And then I shifted. Join me for a guided body-based exploration from which understanding and love effortlessly arise.

What the Buddha Actually Taught:  The First Three Sermons

Facilitated by David Kerrigan

5 Thursdays, July 23 – August 20,
7:30 – 9:00 pm (via ZOOM)
Priceless Pricing* (see below)

The first three sermons of the Buddha announced the path to the Deathless with astonishing depth, clarity, vividness, and effectiveness.  Over 1,000 human beings attained full Awakening listening to these sermons.  What the Buddha taught is “visible here and now, not subject to time, inviting all to come and see, leading onward, to be known by the wise for themselves.”

So why wait for awakening?  Find joy now!

Come and see for yourself, through reading, discussion, and meditation in action, the joy of living an awakened life “for the welfare of many people, for the happiness of many people, out of compassion for the world, for the good, welfare, and happiness of heavenly beings and humans.”

Book needed for this class – What the Buddha Actually Taught:  The First Three Sermons by David Kerrigan with translations by Bhante Sujato, I.B. Horner, and Bhikkhu Brahmali (a free gift of Dhamma available on PDF).
