An Introduction to Emptiness for Everyone

Half-Day Course

Our lack of peace is coming from our strong grasping at a self and world that does not exist. We need to gain perfect knowledge that the “things we normally see do not exist”. This knowledge is Buddha’s most precious gift to the world. There is no other way to solve our problems permanently. Through this profound wisdom our unpleasant feelings will cease forever! 

Outer and inner phenomena are like illusions, like dreams and like a reflection of the moon in a clear lake, although they appear they do not truly exist. You should know all phenomena in the same way.”

This half-day course is designed for beginner and experienced practitioners alike. Everyone welcome!
