Monthly Sutta Study Course led by Phil Jones

New Monthly Sutta Study Course led by Phil Jones
For our next meeting, on Monday Feb. 4, 7-9 p.m., we’ll be reading and discussing sutta # 10, the Satipatthana Sutta (The Four Foundations or Four Establishments of Mindfulness). These are the core practices that create the conditions for having the direct experiential knowledge of dependent origination, the not-self nature of conditioned reality, and the first stage of Awakening.Bring your copies of The Middle Length Discourses and your curiosity.

 

The Sutta Study Course began a new session on Nov. 12 reading and discussing The Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha. During each meeting we will begin with a short period of silent meditation, read out loud portions of the month’s sutta readings, and explore questions or comments you may have about the text. The focus is both on understanding the teachings and on how they are relevant to your own life and practice.

 

The course will meet about once a month,  from 7-9 p.m. Offered on a dana basis. Registration is required.
