Canceled - Class: The Wheel of Life, CC 9/27-11/15

Thursdays, September 27 - November 15
7:30 - 9 pm
with Shokan Jordan Thorn

The wheel of life, also known as the wheel of becoming, or bhavacakra, is a visual representation of the Buddhist path.

This class will begin with a study of the three poisons of greed, hatred, and delusion.

We will also investigate Buddhist teachings on the six realms of existence: gods, demi-gods, humans, animals, hungry ghosts, and hells. These allegorical descriptions of our common life experience are a central metaphor visually expressed in the wheel of life mandala.
