Tuesday Night General Program (GP)

          Fall series: Buddhist Answers to Life’s Deepest Questions

Can we know the answers to life’s deepest questions? In a world of so much confusion and unhappiness, Buddha’s teachings have a tremendous amount of wisdom and clarity to offer on the big topics of our existence. Join us for a unique and creative course that can give meaning, purpose and a spiritual context to life in the modern world.


Our Tuesday evening drop-in meditation classes provide a basic introduction to Buddhist teachings and meditation that are suitable for beginners and experienced meditators. Each month we explore a new topic from Buddha’s teachings and learn how to practically apply it in our daily lives.

These classes are offered as a series, but they are also self contained and can be taken individually. Please feel free to drop in on a class-by-class basis.

Every class begins with a relaxation meditation and includes a teaching, a guided meditation on the topic, discussion and Q&A. Refreshments and treats are provided after class.

No special clothing is required. No pre-registration required.

Everyone welcome.

**On the first Tuesday of every month, please join us for “happy half-hour”.  See details below.
