Our Next Classes Begin in July 2019. Second Series starts Sept 2019
Welcome to Salt Lake Buddhist Fellowship’s & Utah Buddhists Online Sangha’s Basic Buddhism Class which is offered three times a year. This course is primarily for those newer to Buddhism or those who would like a refresher on some basic Buddhist concepts. The goal of the course to share basic Buddhist concepts, to clear up and misconceptions and to show how Buddhism can enrich our everyday lives.
Our class is facilitated by our Guest Sensei Jenn Renyo Sensei, from the Mount Timpanogos Buddhist Sangha.
One thing that makes this course a little different is that it is more focused on a personal spiritual discovery rather than scholarly study. This is a 5-week course and we will be using one book for our readings, there will be two response papers and two group discussion groups both online. If you interested please contact me at email@example.com with Basic Buddhism Class in the subject line.
