A group of people from Simply Meditation will shortly be holding the first of eight discussions around a series of talks by Stephen Batchelor and Roshi Joan Halifax from a retreat titled Being Completely Human, Secular Buddhism and Beyond.
The retreat took place at Upaya Zen Centre, Santa Fe, New Mexico last year. This course will engage those with a reasonable grasp of the basics of Buddhism, and an interest in developing your understanding of the fundamentals a secular approach to the Buddhadharma.
We are asking course participants to listen to recordings of the sessions and work through a study guide prior to the meetings.
You can find the study material here. It’s 600MB of audio files and PDFs.
Wherever you are in the world, we encourage you to go through it as a self-study course, or with friends.
Our thanks go to Christine Johnson of Upaya Sangha of Tucson, Arizona, for creating and sharing her study guides to this series of talks. Kia ora!
