Interested in Buddhist Thought and Practice?

Life is hard – there’s death, illness, loss of loved ones, having to be around people one doesn’t like, being away from those you do like due to pandemic restrictions and more. The Buddha acknowledges the difficulty of all these kinds of things but goes on to explain that we suffer a lot more than necessary because we don’t understand the way things really are (including our own true nature).  When we learn to see things more clearly, we will have more ease and happiness in our lives.

In PHL 244: Buddhist Thought this spring we will explore Buddhist philosophy, Buddhist psychology and some down-to-earth practices (some of which we will try out ourselves).

If this sounds good to you, consider signing up for PHL 244. We will be meeting online for synchronous discussions Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:30 to 10:45 a.m.

The course is eligible for the women and gender studies minor.
