Meditation And Insight: Discovering Reality: Neurosis, Sanity And Meditation
with John Baker and the Westchester Buddhist Center
Tuesday evenings, January 7th through March 24th, 2020
“The Way of the Buddha—Meditation and Insight” is a year-long foundation-level course in 3 semesters (Winter 2020, Spring 2020, Fall 2020). Join us for Semester 1, Discovering Reality: Neurosis, Sanity, and the Way of Meditation,” an exploration of the path of mindfulness-awareness meditation and insight as originally described by the Buddha and skillfully transmitted to the West by one of the great Tibetan masters of our time. We will cover such topics as the life of the Buddha, the birth of confusion and suffering, karma, and the path back to sanity, focusing on the techniques and stages of meditation and bringing meditation into our daily lives. Readings from the works of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and others.
All sessions begin with 30 min. group meditation; instruction is offered in a separate room at the same time for anyone who wishes it.
Classes conclude with tea, snacks and conversation.
Instructors are available for 30-minute private discussions before class, by appointment.
Participants may attend individual classes on a drop-in basis.
All classes will be recorded and available on our website for those not able to attend any class in person.
