Event description

Description

All too often, when we interact with each other we do so in ways that generate disharmony, discord, and conflict. The Buddha, in his boundless wisdom, taught a number of direct and readily applicable ways to avoid creating conflict and to interact with others in a mutually beneficial way. One of the major discourses from the Pāli Canon on this subject is "The Analysis of Non-Conflict" (MN139 Araṇavibhaṅga Sutta - http://bhantesuddhaso.com/teachings/sutta/mn139-aranavibha%e1%b9%85ga-sutta/). Over the course of three sessions, Bhante Suddhāso will lead us in close examination of the text and its relevance to our daily lives.

Each session will begin with meditation and end with Q&A.
