Buddhism contains an abundant repository of wise spiritual practices for everyday life. This e-course draws on the riches of this tradition. The course is designed as a 40-day retreat, although you can choose a different frequency during the sign-up process.
The 40 emails each contain a thought-provoking and soul-stirring quotation from a contemporary Buddhist teacher for you to reflect upon during the day. This is accompanied by a suggestion for how you can practice being present, equanimity, compassion, generosity, patience and other essential Buddhist ideals during the day.
This is not a course on the history of Buddhism or a summary of its basic teachings. Instead, we will give you access to some of the finest Buddhist teachers of our day — the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Pema Chodron, Lama Surya Das, Sharon Salzberg, Sylvia Boorstein, and many others — through passages from their recent writings. Our intent is to connect you with resources you can use on your spiritual journey as well as sample practices you can do each day.
Practicing Spirituality with Buddhists has been one of our most popular e-courses, often listed in evaluations as the "top favorite." We're pleased to be able to offer it for those new to the e-courses and in a way that fits into your schedule.
(6 CEHs for Chaplains available.)
