What the Buddha Taught

September 14th—December 8th

    Study Group

    The Buddha’s fundamental insights into human existence became the foundation for generations of practitioners of the Buddhist path, and a source of inspiration for many others, up to the present day

    The Matteson Shambhala group  is offering this study group to explore in greater depth the central Buddhist concept of interdependence - how karma works - and how this classical teaching underpins the Shambhala principles of windhorse and “auspicious coincidence.”

    As we practice meditation and learn more about the habitual tendencies that keep us locked in this cycle of confusion, we begin to unravel our misunderstanding and tame the patterns that cause this suffering. Through the practice of waking up in the present moment, we plant the seeds for wisdom and auspiciousness to blossom. 

    All are welcomed regardless of experience level or participation in any prior program. Come for one or all sessions. Meetings are free but donations are welcome. 

    Note: Please register so we may send you the location and study material for each session
