Do you crave connection?  Trying to make sense of the world? Want to learn how to make your life meaningful? 

Join in Young Adults Explore Buddhism.

Sravasti Abbey invites young adults aged 18 to 29 to explore the Buddha’s teachings within our American culture. No meditation experience is necessary; just an open and curious mind/heart.

Usually offered as a residential course, Exploring Buddhism 2020 will be shared on Zoom.

The course includes meditation instruction and practice, daily teachings and Dharma discussions with Ven. Thubten Chodron, with support from Sravasti Abbey monastics. Space is limited, and registration is required.

Recommended reading: Open Heart, Clear Mind by Ven. Thubten Chodrona complete description of the Buddhist world view.
