Basics of Buddhism - 8 week series


What’s Happening?

Over 8 weeks we’ll explore the foundational Buddhist concepts including:

  • Who was the Buddha?
  • The History of Buddhism
  • Is there a Buddhist Bible?
  • The Four Noble Truths
  • The Eight-Fold Path
  • The Three Marks of Existence
  • The Three Poisons
  • Buddha Nature & Bodhicitta
  • And more if we still have time after all that…

We’ll also show how to tie these concepts together in a way that is easy to understand and remember.

Class size will be limited so sign up soon to save your spot! To encourage deeper discussions the class will be kept small and will not be open for week to week drop-in attendance.

About The Organization
In 1996, four of Kansas City's most influential spiritual leaders came together to found a center dedicated to the practice of Western-style Buddhism. Ben Worth created the American Buddhist Center, which has become the Temple Buddhist Center, and is now under the direction of Victor Dougherty. Western-style Buddhism is a blend of Eastern philosophy and Western psychology. This new and exciting form of spirituality is dynamic, inclusive, active, and focuses on core Buddhist insights, mindfulness, meditation and their practical application in our daily life. The goal of TBC isn’t to get everyone to agree on ONE LINEAGE or PHILOSOPHY. Rather it’s on cultivating a SHARED EXPERIENCE of Mindfulness, Oneness, and LOVE. Whether we are chanting, meditating, building a flower mandala or sharing from the heart in any of our classes, recovery groups or focus sanghas, you are sure to find connection to the Dharma and ultimately your Buddha nature as we cultivate more happiness and less suffering, one breath at a time.
