Dharma Talks

Posted on Feb 25 , 2011 in Our Programs

Dharma Talks

Talks are a great opportunity to learn more about zen teaching. They consist of a short introductory talk by a student followed by a question and answer session with a teacher or senior student. They are held every Sunday and fourth Wednesday of each month at the Providence Zen Center and usually last about one hour.

    Hello,
    I am recently reading and learning about zen practice and buddhism in general. I have been very interested in attending a meditation class and dharma talk to expand my knowledge and quest for enlightenment.
    Just needed some basic information about what to expect and general info about the class.
    Thank You

    Jeff,

    I ‘captain’ a Pan-Mass Challenge cycling team (we’ve raised nearly one million dollars for cancer research over the past decade) named “Team Kinetic Karma” based on my interest in Buddhism and the many parallels between Buddhists teachings, our fight against cancer and the basic act of endurance cycling. I thought that it would be a great experience if one of our weekend training rides stopped at the center for a quick visit and was able to get a quick Dharma talk (15-20 minutes) that connected Buddhist teachings with any of the facets of our ‘challenge’. If you think that this might be possible, please email me and we can chat about how we might make it happen.

    Warm regards,
    Dave
