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).
