Buddhist Studies Program

The Buddhist Studies Program is designed for people who have attended three or more mindfulness meditation retreats and have a commitment to daily meditation practice. This ongoing program is designed to deepen our understanding through the study and application of the teachings of the Buddha. Each class will include a short talk, small-group discussions, and guided sitting time. Participants will be expected to use the teachings as a focus for their daily practice.

All Common Ground programs are offered freely in the spirit of generosity. To learn more about supporting the center and our teachers, click here.

In this study we will develop our skills at starving/weakening the hindrances and strengthening/developing the seven factors of awakening. This fall we will be learning how to cultivate the natural process of awakening by taking responsibility for strengthening and balancing the specific mental qualities that inevitably lead to the deepening of insight and release.
