Buddhist Meditation Classes in Portland

So many people experience difficulties and problems throughout their lives, but few understand where these challenges are coming from—or how best to respond to them. Buddhist philosophy is based on the Four Noble Truths, Buddha’s very first teaching. The Four Noble Truths function to diagnose the human problem of suffering—and provide accessible, solution-oriented methods to productively respond to unhappiness while building pathways to lasting peace.

Come enjoy this series about these fundamental Buddhist tenets and learn how they can easily fit into our lives to temporarily and ultimately relieve the inner problems of modern life. 

Feel free to drop-in to any class in the series.
