Buddhist Studies

UNDERSTANDING IMPERMANENCE with Mark Nunberg and Visiting Teachers

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. This eight-week course will explore the Buddha’s teachings on impermanence, the first of the three characteristics that are said to mark all of existence. Insight into the changing and insubstantial nature of all phenomena is essential in freeing the mind of its deep habit of clinging. 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.

Eight Mondays, June 24 – August 12, 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. Optional sitting period, 7:00 – 7:30 p.m.

"From an inconstruable beginning comes flowing on. A beginning point is not evident, though beings cloaked in ignorance and tied to craving are flowing on & wandering on. What do you think, practitioners: Which is greater, the tears you have shed while flowing & wandering this long, long time — crying from being joined with what is displeasing, being separated from what is pleasing — or the water in the four great oceans?" SN 15.3
