Space is limited: Due to the nature of online practice there are a limited number of spaces available in this cohort. Out of respect to all who wish to participate we ask that, before registering, you are committed to attending all sessions for the duration of the course.

Offered on a dana basis: This program is being offered in the tradition of dana. Participants are encouraged to explore the opportunity to practice dana, or the cultivation of generosity and giving. Participants may offer a donation to Gary at any point they feel moved; there is no correct sum or time to give. If so moved, donations can be offered by visiting our Giving page.

Exploring Right View

With Gary Steinberg

September 5 - October 3, 2017

In this five week course we will explore right view through the lens of impermanence, stress, and impersonality using a practice frequently taught by Venerable Punnaji, a teacher of Gary’s. We’ll explore the tendency to fabricate a self concept around our possessions, jobs, relationships, and body-mind, and how to find freedom from these habits through wisdom. We’ll also explore how to harness this wisdom to arouse empathy and compassion for others ensnared by these human habits.

Participants will meet online in real-time via Zoom (web video conference) for 90 minutes on Tuesdays for five consecutive weeks.

Weekly Practice Schedule
Sept 5 – Possessions as me and mine
Sept 12 – Careers as me and mine
Sept 19 – Relationships as me and mine
Sept 26 – The body-mind as me and mine
Oct 3 – Compassion and Empathy
