Living the Dharma: The Buddha's Wisdom for an Ethical Life

Living an ethical life is a path to joy and personal freedom.

Living the Dharma: The Buddha’s Wisdom for an Ethical Life

After the Buddha saw into the nature of suffering and found his enlightenment, he went on to teach for over 40 years, creating the most systematic and well-documented dharma’s (teachings) of all of the ancient sages. There is untold wisdom ingrained in these teachings, and, when understood correctly, they offer us a clear path for living a wise and ethical life.


Join Kate Duncan, lifelong student of the Yoga and Buddha Dharma, on this 6-week course to delve into the core teachings of the Buddha. You will learn the fundamentals of what the Buddha meant for us to understand about the world (and ourselves). As we weave each teaching together we will see that living an ethical life, with kindness and compassion toward all beings, the earth included, is a path to joy and personal freedom.


Living the Dharma will require a two hour commitment every Sunday night, either in-studio or on livestream, plus your best intention to cultivate mindfulness in your daily life through formal and informal home practice.
