4 Mondays, January 14 - February 4, 6:30-8:30 pm. Taught by Shosan Garth Monroe
The Noble Eightfold Path is the fourth Noble Truth taught by the Buddha.
The eightfold path is not theory, but rather a course of action. The class will begin with a brief review of the four noble truths. We will then delve into each element of the eightfold path. Excerpts or teachings will be shared to illustrate each element.
Lastly, the class will explore how we live with the eightfold path. The overall objective will be to create an intention for our lives, and to live more skillfully with others at work, home, and school.
The class will reference two free PDF textbooks: Noble Eightfold Path by the Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi and The Eightfold Path for Householders, Jack Kornfield. Click the title for links to the sites for downloading the texts.
