YEARLONG BUDDHIST STUDIES COURSE 1
ENTERING THE PATH
with Ethan Nichtern & Teaching Team
Tuesdays, January 23rd – February 27th, 2024
from 7:00pm-9:00pm ET
This course focuses on The Buddhist Path, The Four Noble Truths, The Eightfold Path, Buddhist Teachings on the Self, and the Path of Conduct and Ethics.
We begin at the beginning, by doing the thing that is so hard to do—establish a daily mindfulness (Shamatha) meditation practice.
We will look into what motivates us to transform our way of looking at meditation as more than just a stress-reducing practice, and into an entire life path of study, practice and ACTION where we explore our sense of self, our confusion, and begin to transform our entire understanding of reality.REGISTER NOW FOR $295
YEARLONG BUDDHIST STUDIES
The full yearlong program is comprised of five six-week online courses. Courses like the one above can be taken individually and are suited for students of all experience levels.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING:
“I could not speak more highly of this course and Ethan as a teacher! I came in as a complete beginner without a formal practice, so if anybody in the same boat now has doubts, don’t fret!”
“The online course allows this full time working mom to have access to the dharma and a sangha in a way that would be otherwise impossible. When the stars align and I can attend the live class, Ethan and his guests are engaging and interactive. The break out sessions are also insightful. Definitely worth investing the time and money.”
“This course changed my life. It opened so many things in my life and path…May it benefit many many people!”
