The Noble Eight-Fold Path to Happiness
Just as a capable physician might instantly cure a patient who is in pain and seriously ill, so also…whatever one hears of the Buddha’s Dharma — be it discourse, mixed prose, explanations, or marvelous statements — one’s sorrow, lamentation, pain, grief and despair will vanish.
The core of the Buddha’s teachings can be described in two essential principles: The Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eight-Fold Path. The Eight-Fold Path arises from the Fourth Truth: walking a path that ends suffering and leads to happiness. This roadmap is for cultivating the fundamental ingredients needed to live a mindful life — a 2,600-year-old, step-by-step process of mental training for creating contentment and happiness and for ending suffering.
Who should take this course? The most important factor is a strong desire to expand and deepen your mindfulness practice and the wish to bring it into daily living. This class is ideal for those who have basic training in mindfulness meditation. Beginners and drop-ins are welcome!
