7:30 - 9 pm
with Jeffrey Schneider
When everything is removed, taken away, seen through, then what? Does any basis for practice or awakening remain? Emptiness is a central concept in every school of Mahayana Buddhism. In this gathering we will clarify the teaching and investigate the ways it may play out in our lives. Although we will read and discuss the various doctrines of emptiness, the focus of the group will be on our own experience. We will use both group discussion and one to one dialogues as our primary tools. Requirements:
A working knowledge of Buddhist teachings, a commitment to attend every class and a willingness to participate actively. Class fees; five class meetings:
$75; $67 current SFZC members; $60 limited income. To Register:
