from 6:00pm-7:00pm ET 



Join Buddhist teacher and author Ethan Nichtern for a free online session about Dharma Moon's upcoming Yearlong Buddhist Studies course beginning in January 2023.

The course offers a deep training in meditation, Buddhist philosophy and psychology, spanning the entire 2023 year. 

Designed to be highly practical (and occasionally geeky), it will be a comprehensive overview of the Buddhist path, with an emphasis on the psychological, metaphysical, and socially engaged elements, and will help you establish or reestablish a commitment to regular meditation practice through a variety of Buddhist techniques.

This online session will cover both Year One and Year Two of the Yearlong Buddhist Studies Course.
