New Dharma Light class schedule announced

The Buddhist Study Center’s Dharma Light program has announced its July-December 2016 set of classes, now open for registration.

Offerings begin with the annual Summer Session, this year featuring Dr. Jeff Wilson on “Mindfulness & Buddhism in America.”

Other course titles include “Buddhist Insights on Current Social Issues,” “Understanding Shin Buddhism: First Steps,” and “Pure Land Buddhism & the Shin Path: Introduction to Jodo Shinshu.” One series entitled, “Happy Hour (Respite in Buddhist Happiness),” is offered the last Friday of the month July-October and offers Buddhist “talk story” with cold refreshments.

Courses meet from four to seven times, mostly at the Buddhist Study Center near UH Manoa. The “Understanding Shin Buddhism: First Steps” series is offered once at Kailua Hongwanji and once at Hawaii Betsuin (Pali Highway).

Course offerings are listed on the Dharma Light Classes page and also in the events calendar. See also the brochure and registration form.
