Buddhism in a Nutshell
with Venerable Amy Miller
Tuesdays, Sep 6, 13, 20, 27 & Oct 4, 7–8:30pm EDT ONLINE
Are you curious about Buddhism? Would you like to find out more without any long-term commitment? If so, this five-session course is for you!
Buddhism in a Nutshell is a great opportunity to get an overview of basic Buddhist philosophy and principles and learn how to integrate them into your life.
Join us for a refreshing overview of Buddhist practice. In addition to readings and discussion, you will receive simple meditation instruction to bring this time-tested philosophy from the head to the heart. All are welcome!
It will be most beneficial if you can attend the whole series but you can also register for individual stand-alone sessions if you prefer.
This is an online-only event that is administered using Zoom, as the center is currently closed due to COVID-19. Zoom is an interactive video-conferencing tool that allows participants to see one another and ask questions. You will need a computer, a tablet or a smartphone with the Zoom application to attend.
After registering, the system automatically sends a confirmation and/or a receipt email that contains the Zoom meeting link or other instructions. If you are using Zoom for the first time, please login a few minutes earlier to allow any necessary installations on your device.
