About the Course/Retreat

Introduction to The Teachings of The Buddha (3-hours)

This course is an introduction to The Teachings and practices of The Buddha.

You will learn “What is a Buddha”, “What The Teachings of The Buddha are and are not”, how a Practitioner can develop a “life practice” based on independent verification of Gotama Buddha’s Teachings to determine if they are true or false.

Students will be introduced to how they can acquire wisdom through learning, reflecting (i.e. independently verifying), and practicing The Teachings of The Buddha, leading to Enlightenment.

Students will learn the very first Teaching of The Buddha which describes the problem in the unEnlightened mind, the cause of the problem, the elimination of the problem, and the path to eliminating the problem. Students can experience a break through to finally understand what is causing the discontent feelings in their mind and how to eliminate them on The Path to Enlightenment.

At the conclusion of this course, Students will have learned an introduction to these Teachings and an introduction to developing a meditation practice to eliminate discontent feelings from the mind such as sadness, anger, frustration, irritation, annoyance, guilt, shame, fears, boredom, loneliness, shyness, jealousy, resentment, stress, anxiety, etc.

The Enlightened mind will experience peacefulness, calmness, serenity, and contentedness with joy - permanently. The Enlightened mind will no longer experience any discontent feelings and this course can be your first step in that direction.
