Buddha’s 4 Big Truths: Liberation from Suffering (Four Wednesdays)

Part of EBMC’s Core Buddhist Teachings: 5-month Curriculum.
Why do we suffer? How can we be released from suffering? The Buddha’s first teaching after his Enlightenment is called the Four Noble Truths, which form the foundation of Buddhist life and understanding. These four big truths address human suffering

and oppression, analyze their root causes, and describe a path of liberation from human suffering that is both profound and practical. Dharma talks, interactive exercises, journaling, meditation and optional readings. Beginners in meditation are welcome.
