Buddhist Essentials Classes
Buddhist Essentials is a series of nine monthly classes exploring some of the core teachings of Buddhism. The classes will be organized around the various lists in Buddhism, e.g. the four noble truths, the four foundations of mindfulness, the brahma viharas, and others.
Each class will include silent meditation, a dhamma talk, group discussions, and suggestions and guidance for practice. People can join individual classes or participate in the entire series.
These classes will be taught by SIMS’ Local Dharma Leaders (LDLs) and are open to anyone with experience in mindfulness meditation equivalent to SIMS Introductory Meditation Class. While the class will be accessible to beginners, it will also be substantive enough for experienced practitioners.
