Living Dharma Program

Exploring and Integrating the Eight-fold path in Daily Life

Coming late 2022

This introductory program is for meditators / Buddhist practitioners wishing to engage wholeheartedly in a deep exploration of their dharma practice through the study and teaching of the Buddha’s Noble Eightfold path. Using the classic Buddhist teachings of sila, samadhi, and panna (ethics, meditation, and wisdom), we will look at how we cultivate mindfulness, kindness, and balance given the inner stresses of modern life and the outer social challenges of inequity and pressure of climate change.

This will be a practical, experiential, and meditative program, through the exploration of the Buddha’s teachings on cultivating the eight limbs of the Dharma path, namely, Wise Effort, Wise Concentration, Wise Mindfulness, Wise Understanding, Wise Motivation, Wise Action, Wise Livelihood and Wise Communication. Through the support of these teachings we will inquire how to live and respond to life with awareness, wisdom, and compassion.

In this journey, we will create a vibrant learning community to study, meditate, inquire into these key areas of Buddhist teaching, and how to make these teachings practically relevant in our current social milieu. Our meditative path of practice and what is happening around us politically, socially and globally are not separate. As we explore the Eightfold Path teachings, we will apply what was taught 2600 years ago to what we live and experience in our contemporary lives.
