The Essentials of Buddhism: A Course of Learning & Practice

In January 2019, I am offering “The Essentials of Buddhism: A Course of Learning & Practice”, which is a 15-hour course consisting of two day-long retreats on the teachings and practice of Buddhism plus a brief overview of Buddhist history. Time will be equally divided between instruction and meditation practice. Noble silence will be observed. We conclude the series with a 2-hr class on the relationship between Unity and Buddhist teachings.

 Please join me for the following retreats and classes:

January 12th (10am- 4.30pm) The Four Noble Truths,

January 19th (10am- 4.30pm) The Three Vehicles and the Three Characteristics, January 22nd (7-9pm) Buddhism and Unity.

 The January 12th and January 19th full-day retreats are $75 each, or $135 for both; January 22nd (2-hr) class is $25; for all three, the cost is $150.

 All of these will be held at Unity Temple on the Plaza in the Charles Fillmore Chapel. For the Saturday retreats (10am- 4.30pm) you may bring your lunch and eat in Meyer Hall, which is on the lower level.

 You may pick up a registration form at TBC Sunday Services or pay at the door. Please make checks payable to Temple Buddhist Center. Scholarships are available; no one will be turned away for lack of funds. For information, please email Victor at victordougherty@unitytemple.com.

Householder's Retreat

Our upcoming retreat: “Waking Up and Showing Up” will meet at Unity Village in the Education Bldg.

This retreat is designed to promote and support mindfulness in both the retreat setting and in your everyday life. Our intention is to help you integrate the dharma into the very fabric of your daily life.

The retreat format is traditionally known as a “Householder’s Retreat” which distinguishes it from the “Monastic” format of a residential retreat. We will meet for a full day on each weekend and for two evenings during the week. Assignments are given to aid in the daily life practice.

We meet all day (10am-5pm) Sunday 10/21 and Saturday 10/27, and 7pm to 9pm Tuesday (10/23) and Thursday (10/25). Register at www.midamericadharma.org.


Our sangha meets every Thurs at 7.00pm Classroom C Unity Temple on the Plaza. These gatherings are open to everyone interested.
