Buddhism in a Nutshell
with Don Isaacson
Mondays, 7:00pm – 8:30pm
January 12 – February 2, 2015
This is an introductory course that provides a general overview of basic Buddhist philosophy for complete beginners or a “refresher” for those who have some experience. It does not assume that those who come for this course know anything at all about Buddhism or about meditation. Anyone is welcome to attend who is interested in learning something about Buddhism in its various forms presented in a Tibetan Mahayana context.
This is a great opportunity to learn about Buddhism in a relaxed environment, and each class includes time for meditation and discussion. Join Don Isaacson, an experienced long-time practitioner, as he introduces you to Buddhist principles with a focus on how they can help you in your daily life.
Anyone is welcome to attend any or all sessions.
Suggested donation: $15 per class or $50 for (4) classes if paid in full on first class.
Members of a certain level get courses for free (see the membership program for details).
Your generous donations are essential for the continuation of programs like this.
