    Fearless Buddha, Peaceful Warrior: An Introduction to Buddhism and Shambhala

    The Shambhala tradition is founded on the sanity and gentleness of the Buddhist teachings. Buddhism (spiritual) gives us the teachings on understanding the human condition of suffering and how to get out of it; Shambhala (secular) gives us the vision to bring this understanding into our daily lives. In this four-week class, we will explore how these two visions - spiritual and secular - are inseparable.

    This class is being taught by Patti Morgan and Suzanne Jones

    Open to all, no charge. Come for the class from 6:45 to 8 pm or come at 5:30 for the open meditation hour. 

    Donations always appreciated!

    3 Yanas - The Vehicles For Traveling The Dharma Path

    Stream, path, journey. These are different metaphors that describe the
    study of Buddhism as a journey and the Dharma teachings as the path. The
    word yana, a sanskrit word that further enhances
    the metaphor of the spiritual journey with the idea that there are
    various vehicles to convey a person along that path. There are three
    main yanas: hinayana, mahayana and vajrayana, each provide different
    modes of transportation or practices from sitting meditation to
    visualization to discover one's own Buddha nature or attain enlightenment.
