Four Saturdays of Exploration

Mindsprings has always offered meditation and therapy in a non-aligned way. That is to say, I've never set myself up as a specifically Buddhist teacher even though my training and my background is in Buddhism. Typically, Mindsprings courses avoid too much religious jargon and draw on a lot of current neuroscientific or therapeutic thinking. 

But over the years, some students have requested teaching days where we go into detail into the dharma and so I held four Saturdays in the first half of 2021 to do just that. 

Week 1 Four Noble Truths
Week 2 The Formation of Self
Week 3 Karma
Week 4 Bodhicitta

There is no need to have any experience of these teachings and the Dharma Days are constructed as open forums for exploring these fascinating topics.

Please just log in and enjoy the sessions.

I offer these days for free!

Buddhist teaching is always offered freely but students may wish to donate to support the Mindsprings community.
