Erin Treat and Bill Ball
Wednesdays, 4/15, 4/29, 5/6, 5/13, 6-8:00 pm
This class will explore the enormous stress that comes with trying to be “someone” and how this habitual tendency causes suffering and becomes a substitute for knowing the deepest nature of our minds and hearts. With sustained mindful attention, we can greet the activity of self, not as a problem but as an ally in our journey to greater happiness and well-being. We will delve into Buddhist teachings to learn how this sense of self arises and passes away due to conditions. By bringing awareness, curiosity, and lovingkindness to the phenomena we call self, we can experience a liberating shift in perception that leads to clear-seeing and compassion.
The class will utilize Dharma teaching, small group experience, assigned readings and guided meditation to support our learning. It is required that you have at least a 5-day residential retreat or equivalent practice experience as a prerequisite for the class. Please contact Bill (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions.
Class held at Durango Dharma Center, 208 CR 250, at the intersection of 32nd Street and CR 250 (East Animas Rd). Registration fee supports the Durango Dharma Center, but there will be an opportunity to offer dana in support of the teachers.
