|Many are drawn to Buddhism and spirituality with a keen interest in meditation. Yet before offering any meditation instructions, the Buddha guided his disciples in a progression of practice known as The Gradual Training. This training provides a step-by-step approach to living a life of meaning and inner happiness, and culminates in the highest fruit of contemplative practice – Awakening.
During this day of integrated practice, we will explore these essential aspects of the Buddhist path as a ground for happiness and the foundation of meditation. Our day will include periods of discussion, question and answer, silent meditation, and reflection.|
