Foundational Series: Meditation Workshop - The 4th Noble Truth

  • Long Beach Meditation 5100 East The Toledo Long Beach, CA, 90803 United States (map)

Led by Jampa Kalsang

This morning workshop will be a meditation focused exploration of this month’s teaching theme, The Fourth Noble Truth of Buddhism: the truth of the path out of suffering. We will actively practice the aspects of discipline found in the third, fourth and fifth steps of the Eightfold Path: harmonious speech, action, and livelihood.

The workshop will include:

  • Opening meditation
  • Review of the third, fourth and fifth steps of the Eightfold Path: harmonious speech, action, and livelihood.
  • How do we cultivate these three aspects of discipline in meditation and expand this practice into our daily lives?
  • Meditation Q&A and group discussion
  • Closing meditation

As part of LBM’s foundational teachings series, this workshop will focus on the practice of meditation. To gain the most benefit, it is recommended to attend the Dharma study class offered two weeks before this meditation workshop led by Guiding Teacher Jokai Blackwell Sensei on September 1. The Dharma study class will introduce the concepts used in this meditation practice workshop in depth. However, if not able to attend the Dharma study class, this mediation workshop will offer a brief review of the concepts covered in the Dharma study class.

This workshop is suitable for meditators of all levels.


Refunds are available up to 24 hours before the course.
