Buddhism + everyday life


An online course with Lodro Rinzler

5 Wednesdays, 7:00-8:30pm EDT, April 4th-May 2nd


With mindfulness being all the rage these days, it's easy to lose track of what it actually means and where it came from. Join Lodro for a five week series where we trace mindfulness back to the original teachings of the Buddha and learn how to bring this simple concept into the nitty-gritty details of our life.

Week 1: The Life of the Buddha and his Four Noble Truths (or Why You Suffer and How to Get Over It)

Week 2: The Eightfold Path I: Wise View, Intention Setting and Decent Action

Week 3: The Eightfold Path II: Wise Livelihood and Exerting Ourselves in Relationships 

Week 4: The Eightfold Path III: Wise Mindfulness and Concentration, as well as the Four Foundations of Mindfulness

Week 5: Loving-Kindness for Ourselves and Others, Compassion, Joy and Equanimity

Each week includes a short guided meditation, a talk by the teacher, and time for questions on the material. Everyone attending will be assigned an "accountability buddy" to check in with so we support one another in daily meditation practice in between each class. 

All classes will be recorded for later listening. One-on-one meetings with the instructor are offered at an additional cost.

If you are ready to see the effects of meditation on how your live your everyday life, join us for this experience. We will study how meditation practice impacts not only your own life, but your relationships with others and society overall.
