Does Buddhism speak to lay practitioners or is it a monastic teaching for the recluse? What comes forward within this teaching that allows urban life to be used for spiritual awakening? This series of dharma talks, alternate discussions, and homework will use the Eightfold Path as a guideline toward opening to the inherent freedom within the complexities of lay life. With that intention, we will explore each step to see how it pertains to urban dwelling.
This talk was given at Nalanda West on Friday, October 3, 2008, prior to a nonresidential retreat at Bastyr University.
