Offered online and in person.
Wednesdays, January 4 – February 8, 7:15 – 8:45 pm
Please register five days in advance.
Yogacara, or Mind-Only, Buddhism emphasizes psychological transformation through Buddhist practice. The psychological insights formed by this tradition two thousand years ago still ring true, and the Yogacara principle that each aspect of our consciousness can be transformed into enlightened activity. This class will focus on the teachings in Ben Connelly's new book, Vasubandhu's "Three Natures.” Please arrive at the first class meeting with a copy of the book, which is available on the front porch at MZMC.

A Note About Donation-only Programming
Following the Buddhist tradition of dana, or giving, MZMC offers all of our programs on a donation basis. We offer a suggested donation amount to help people understand the average amount we hope to receive to continue to make these offerings. We encourage those with more capacity for giving to make a donation above the suggested amount to support those who need to give a smaller amount.
