What the Buddha Taught: An Introduction to Buddhism


What was new about the Buddha’s enlightenment?  What were his most transformative insights?  How do we connect with this fundamental wisdom today?

This introductory class will take an immersive and experiential approach to these questions.  The four-hour program will include guided meditation practice, talks on the life and teaching of the Buddha, contemplative exercises, a study period and discussion.  There will be a communal lunch break and opportunity for outdoor time.

Prerequisites: None.  Please bring a lunch.  Study materials will be provided

Full Program Fee: $50 
This price covers Burlington Shambhala Center’s actual operating cost for the program (including ongoing costs of running the Center).

Generosity policy:  If needed, pay what you can offer.
