Appreciative Joy

Appreciative Joy and Equanimity

The Buddhist Studies Program is designed for people who have attended three or more mindfulness meditation retreats and have a commitment to daily meditation practice. Participants will be expected to use the teachings as a focus of their meditation and daily practice. For the summer and fall courses, participants are encouraged to purchase Sharon Salzberg's book, Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness. This eight-week course explores two of the four divine abodes. These are the beautiful boundless emotions described by the Buddha. We will take them up both as a meditative training and a daily life reflection used to transform the weight and inertia of our afflictive states of mind. Led by Mark Nunberg. Please contact the center to register.


Eight Mondays, September 19 – November 7, 7:30 – 9:00 p.m.

Optional sitting period, 7:00 – 7:30 p.m.
