Buddhism Beyond Beliefs: A Path of Wisdom & Love

Why Courses Are the Most Powerful Way to Learn

STRUCTURE: Modern life is busy! Courses help you build foundational skills faster through weekly classes and daily practice.

SEQUENTIAL LEARNING: Courses help you foster a deeper understanding of subject matter, receive ongoing feedback from a knowledgable instructor, and develop a framework to directly experiment with and apply new skills as the course progresses.

ACCOUNTABILITY: Courses motivate you to show up, make the most of your investment, and eliminate the time and effort you might spend on other distracting activities.
 

COMMUNITY: There's no substitute for practicing with other human beings. Research shows that community is a key ingredient of meditation, and while YouTube videos or apps are a great start, group meditation will foster your growth far more than solo practice.
