活動詳情 About The Event

Based on the early teachings of the Buddha in the Theravada tradition, this course is an invitation to explore and understand these teachings for ourselves.

The course consists of 6 sessions. The sessions are scheduled for Saturdays, 24th and 31st August, 7th, 21st, 28th September, and 5th October 2024, from 8 to 9:30 am.

Questions and topics that we may explore include:

  • Why is life sometimes so hard?
  • Is there a path to lasting peace and happiness?
  • What did the Buddha teach? How do I apply it to my life? Where do I begin?

We will see what the Buddha had to say in response to these questions and introduce his key teachings including the Four Noble Truths, the Three Jewels (Buddha, Dhamma Sangha), the Eightfold Path, the 3 roots and 3 marks of existence.

One key aspect of the Buddha’s teachings is not to simply take things on blind faith, but to test and see, for ourselves, through our lived experience and practice. So in this course, you will be learning through self study, reflection and daily life application. And together as a group, we will continue learning and investigating through group discussions and sharing.

This course invites you into an embodied learning based upon internal understanding, rather than purely knowledge or intellect. The facilitators will be there to support and inspire you, more than to teach you.

Who is this course for?

Anyone who is interested in the Buddha’s teachings, regardless of current level of knowledge or experience.

Participants will          

  • Be committed to attend all sessions
    • Expect to set aside at least 1-2 hours a week for further reading and reflection
    • Review and agree to practice in line with our course agreements

This course is offered freely in accordance with the Buddha’s teachings. Participants will be invited to practice generosity (Dana) if they would like to support HKIMS and/or the facilitators.

The course is facilitated by Gen Heng and Eva Li.
