Theravada Years 1-3
We start where we are - with all our confusion, reactive patterns and suffering. Through the practice of meditation, we learn to examine our belief systems and assumptions as well as explore our direct experience of the present moment. This exploration leads to a radical shift in perspective as we come to see the vast potential of our minds.
At the heart of the Theravada path lies the four noble truths. These four truths provide a roadmap for us to follow, seeing how we create our own suffering, and how through this realization, we can cease to create our own suffering. Through this path, we will explore the principles of the four noble truths, in particular the quintessential fact of impermanence of all facets of life, the fact of suffering within our lives, and the truth of the lack of inherent self within our existence.
