Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism: A Book Study Class

with Jesse Miller & John Osajima
November 27 / 7:00 PM - December 18 / 9:00 PM

Cutting through Spiritual Materialism addresses a broad range of Trungpa Rinpoche's teachings, including spiritual materialism itself, the development of ego, the Four Noble Truths, the bodhisattva path, and tantra. We will approach these teachings through a series of book stody discussions presented over the next several months. Participation is open to all interested students and will include periods of meditation practice as part of the class. It is very important that you read, and even re-read, the material to be discussed before each class.
