Living Lightly within the Space of Emptiness

Session Times: 10 – 11:15am | 11:45am – 1pm

There is nothing more meaningful and helpful than to explore Buddha’s most profound teachings, the teachings on emptiness, the true nature of reality. It is through our understanding of emptiness that we can come to solve all our problems and be of maximum benefit to others. In this half-day course, we will explore this liberating wisdom and through our understanding of it learn how to “live lightly,” freeing our self from physical pain and mental suffering. Ultimately, we will come to experience the supreme permanent peace of mind known as nirvana.

“…in this experience everything becomes peaceful and comfortable, balanced and harmonious, joyful and wonderful….everything is equal in the peace of emptiness…”
