Online Courses and NYC Classes with Ethan (Returning January 14!)
This course is designed for students who are searching, or even struggling, to find the next steps in their Buddhist practice. We’ll provide tools to establish or re-establish meditation as a sustainable and even unshakeable (really!) daily habit, while demonstrating how to develop more than simple mindfulness of your experience, incorporating compassion, analytical and visualization techniques to enhance your life and the lives of others. We’ll also discuss how to make study and contemplation of the Dharma an integral part of your routine, and how to include residential and non-residential meditation retreats to support your journey. Whatever level of experience you have, we’ll conclude with a discussion of the next steps for your journey.
In Person Course Monday nights 7-9pm, January 13 – February 17, 2014
