November 6-16, 2017 November 6 @ 4:00 pm - November 16 @ 2:00 pm PST
Ven. Chodron teaches from her book, co-written with His Holiness the Dalai Lama—Buddhism: One Teacher, Many Traditions. The book and the course offer a rare opportunity to delve into Buddhism by studying the commonalities and differences in the various Buddhist traditions.
This is the third installment of the teaching, picking up at Chapter 11, “The Four Immeasurables,” which leads into the section on Bodhicitta, the altruistic intention to become a fully awakened Buddha in order to liberate all sentient beings from suffering.
The course includes two teachings daily, structured group discussions, and time for study. Recommended preparation: read the book before you come. You can also study Ven. Chodron’s teachings on Chapters 1 – 10 in two online courses with Wisdom Academy. (Note that there is a fee for these courses. These videos are not available elsewhere online. Read praise for Wisdom Academy Buddhism: One Teacher, Many Traditions Course 1.)
Like all Abbey programs, the Buddhism: One Teacher, Many Traditions course is offered on a donation basis. An offering and registration form are requested to reserve your place for the retreat.
Arrive by 4:00 on Monday, November 6. Course ends Wednesday, November 16.
