The teachings known as the Four Noble Truths offer profound psychological insights into the nature of suffering.
Understanding and practicing these insights–in meditation and in daily life– is how we free ourselves from suffering. Each class includes lecture, meditation practice, and time for questions. Although these practices come from Buddhism, they are secular in nature, so this course is appropriate for people of any, or no, spiritual tradition.
