Tuesdays, 7-9pm - Live-streamed, or by correspondence.
In FP we study six books in great depth, guided in a close
reading by our resident teacher, and benefiting from the
encouragement and support of our spiritual community.
Each FP class includes:
• Guided meditations and prayers
• Commentary to the text by the teacher
• Paired and group discussion
• Question & answer opportunities
In May we begin a new book, New Heart of Wisdom. By revealing the profound meaning of the very heart of Buddha’s teachings – the Perfection of Wisdom Sutras – this book shows how we can attain pure, lasting happiness through developing special wisdom and universal compassion.
This class is a monthly commitment and pre-registration is required. Anyone is welcome to join.
Paula Kelly, temporary Resident Teacher
