As we progress in our practice, it becomes important to know what the Buddha actually said and to explore how it is -- or is not -- supportive of your life. Pat Coffey, Susan Stone, Heather Karp and Holly Robedeau are offering a 10-month course, meeting once a month, "Bringing Home the Buddha's Teachings." The course, which is experiential, will include small group discussions, insight dialogue, film, poetry and other modalities to help us really bring home the teachings.
Our study material will be: Bhikkhu Bodhi's In the Buddha's Words and, to give a better feel for the times in which the Buddha lived, Susan Stone's novel, The Kosambi Intrigue. Both books are available on Amazon -- to benefit IMCC, please purchase by clicking on the Amazon link at the bottom of the IMCC website home page.
We'll meet at Sojourner's United Church of Christ (1017 Elliot Ave., Cv) on Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 9 starting April 9th. Subsequent dates will be announced. You don't need consider yourself a Buddhist to participate.
Meeting dates: April 9, 2015, May 21, June 11, July 9, Aug 6, Sept 10, Oct 8, Nov 12, Dec 3, Jan 7, 2016
