Discovering Buddhism- All About Karma

Ongoing-Wednesday evenings starting June 6th

This weekly discussion group will introduce you to the Buddhist concept of karma, the law of cause and effect, and what it means to take personal responsibility. Using examples from everyday life, we will analyze how actions determine their results and cause us to experience either happiness or suffering. We will explore purification practices and establish a daily meditation on karma.

Each Discovering Buddhism module consists of teachings, discussions, meditations and readings. Please note that you do not need any previous experience in Buddhism to participate and benefit. We welcome new participants on an ongoing basis.
