Buddhist Studies Course: The Buddha’s Liberating Teachings on Dukkha–The Unsatisfactory Nature of Sense Experience
8 Mondays beginning September 9⋅7:30 – 9:00pm

The Buddhist Studies Program is designed for people who have attended three or more mindfulness meditation retreats and have a commitment to daily meditation practice. This ongoing program is designed to deepen our understanding through the study and application of the teachings of the Buddha. Each class will include a short talk, small-group discussions, and guided sitting time. Participants will be expected to use the teachings as a focus of their daily practice.

In this eight-week course on Dukkha, we will examine the second of three underlying truths that characterize all experience. We will use a stable and continuous present-moment awareness to better investigate the unsatisfactory, uncertain, and ungovernable nature of experience. This underlying nature may be unpleasant, but it doesn’t have to be a personal problem. The Buddha taught that the mind can be trained to see the nature of dukkha clearly in a way that uproots the habits of resistance and/or denial. With practice, it is possible to meet unsatisfactoriness with equanimity, thus opening the door to insight and freedom.
