Essential Topics in Tibetan Buddhism, Class 1
Teacher/Facilitator: Sidney Piburn
Time: 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM
Location: The Synergy Center, 4500 Pewter Lane, Manlius, NY

This is the first class in a series of teachings that will meet once a month in the Syracuse area, generally on a Saturday or Sunday.

This course of meetings will present the key points of Tibetan Buddhist thought, practice, and culture with a special emphasis on the integration of Buddhist methods into our lives as contemporary Westerners. It will cover a great deal of material; however, classes will be somewhat informal in nature, and will include lectures, presentations, and informal discussion, along with meditation practices and exercises. The material will be tailored to the needs of the students attending the class and will be suitable for beginners and experienced students as well.
