Four Noble Truths

 November 1, 2015 – October 2, 2016

Living an “Awakened Life” With the Four Noble Truths & Noble Eightfold Path

Doesn’t it make sense to learn the foundation of this path of practice?

Join a group of conscientious beings as you immerse yourself in “learning” and “walking the path” of the Four Noble Truths, which are considered to be the central doctrine of Buddhist teachings.  Included in the Four Noble Truths is also the Noble Eightfold Path.

This class is for you if…

  • You would like to enhance your meditation practice with deeper understandings and motivation;
  • (And/Or)  You want to gain a greater intellectual understanding of this spiritual path;
  • (And/Or) You are ready to practice the principles laid to on this path – experientially;
  • (And/Or) You’re just a learning junkie!

About the Class

The Four Noble Truths workshop is a monthly 2-hour “Live” series of 12 classes spanning over a year. During the classes, instructor Ronya Banks will teach you the conceptual framework of Buddhist thought. This framework is based on the Buddha’s original doctrine, as well as on additional classical and modern Theravada perspectives from well-known Buddhist teachers.

Notes for each class will be provided to participants after each class via email. Classes will consist of teacher instruction, group discussion, and a short meditation period.

You are invited to practice the principles you have learned via assignments given for each month’s emphases.  This will help you gain an experiential understanding of this path!

The workshop will be limited to 25 participants, so please register early to confirm your spot.
