Announcing Two New Buddhist Study Courses

Introduction to Buddhism

The Life of the Buddha and the Spiritual Journey

WEDNESDAY EVENINGS, APRIL 18  THROUGH MAY 9, 7:00 TO 8:30
Drop-In’s Welcome!

Our course is underway but drop-in’s are welcome. Each week we have a different topic. So, if you are interested in learning more about Buddhism this is a great opportunity. There is no cost but donations are welcome (suggested donation of $5 to $15 per evening). Contact Eileen if you have a question or want more information. Here is a more full description of the course

The life of the Buddha and the spiritual journey is a contemporary look at the spiritual journey. Using the life of the Buddha as the template it examines fundamental ideas such as; what brings us to this journey, how do we really get started, what role does faith play in it and how do we tread this path with love and compassion. These are relevant to all traditions and for people of all faiths. The class is based on the teachings and talks of the Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. Rinpoche is a  contemporary Tibetan Buddhist teacher who has lived most of his life in the U.S. and is very acquainted with western culture, his take on this is delightful, fun and also full of simple, yet profound insight! So please come and join us!

The class runs for 4 sessions starting on Wed. April 18.

Location:  Nalandabodhi, 100 Arapahoe Ave, Suite 6,  Boulder, CO.

The cost is $25.00 plus $15.00 for a copy of the text.
If this is an issue please feel free to contact Steve Burden for other arrangements.

The class will be facilitated by two senior and very experienced teachers, Eileen Kay and Todd Ansted.

Kado Spring Session

April 6, 20 / May 4, 18 and June 1

image001

Spring is a wonderful time to practice the contemplative art of Ikebana or Kado, Japanese flower arranging.  It brings together many elements so that we can have a more direct experience of all our sense perceptions. The practice cultivates an overall mindfulness/awareness and each arrangement becomes a reflection of our present state of mind.

Classes cover the basics of Ikebana from how to cut a stem to how to place plant materials in a container. There will also be exercises on perception and contemplations to help us find joy, harmony and authentic expression in creating arrangements. Class is open for each student, at their own pace, to explore materials, themes, Sogetsu curriculum, and individual curiosity. There will be both beginners and more experienced students in the classes.
