Described by the Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi as “ the collection that combines the richest variety of contextual settings with the deepest and most comprehensive assortment of teachings,” we will look at three suttas in the Majjhima Nikāya (The Middle Discourses) about how conflict arises, recognizing harmful vs. harmless thoughts, and how to stop thoughts.

Throughout the Sutta series, we will explore narratives about and discourses by the Buddha, which have been passed down for over 2,500 years, and directly apply them to practice in our modern lives. 

This program is open to beginning and seasoned meditators alike. All are welcome. This program will include dharma teachings, meditation instructions, and opportunities for Q&R.
