Discovering Buddhism: The Spiritual Teacher
August 14 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
In this course, we investigate the role of the teacher on the spiritual path. We will also look at the qualities of a teacher and of a student, how to avoid common mistakes and how to cultivate a teacher-student relationship for the greatest benefit in our spiritual practice. Presented by our resident teacher Venerable Chokyi.
This topic forms part of a larger structered structured curriculum developed by the FPMT called “discovering Buddhism”. Aimed specifically at newcomers to Buddhism, Discovering Buddhism has 13 modules. The modules are self-contained and can be taken in any order. Each module is taught over several sessions and ends with a “retreat”. The “retreat” is an intensive practical conclusion to the module and takes place over an entire day on a weekend (or over two days on a long weekend).
Venerable Chökyi teaches the Discovering Buddhism modules on Sundays (11.30am to 1pm). Discovering Buddhism can be taken as a formal program with accreditation. When you register for Discovering Buddhism at HBC, each week, you will receive the printed material. Discovering Buddhism is described in more detail on the FPMT website.
