Of all Buddha’s teachings, none are more far-reaching and transformative than the teachings on emptiness, the true nature of reality.  It is through our understanding of emptiness – in particular, the freedom that we experience as a result –  that we can then come to solve all our problems and be of maximum benefit to others.

“With emptiness, anything is possible.”

In this series of talks and guided meditations we will explore this liberating wisdom. Each session will also include discussion and an opportunity to ask questions.

Everyone welcome. Although it’s most beneficial to engage in the whole series, you are welcome to drop in for a class whenever you wish.
