Meditation Garden Work Day

August 12, 2023 @ 9:00 am

New Core Classes this Fall

The Rime Center began offering core classes to its sangha in 2017. These classes were designed to teach the fundamentals of Tibetan Buddhism. This in-depth study was intended to provide a foundation of understanding that would support the sangha in their understanding of Buddhism. A benefit of this was that members of the Rime Sangha would be able to have a deeper understanding of the teachings of visiting teachers, allowing them to connect with and deepen their relationships with them. You can learn more about the original core classes here. Unfortunately due to the Covid pandemic the core classes had been suspended.

This fall, we will be restarting our core classes. The fall classes will reintroduce the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, The Four Boundless Attitudes, and an Introduction to the Path of the Mahayana. Taken sequentially, these classes will provide a strong foundation for understanding and incorporating the teachings into our everyday lives.
