SFDC monthly Dharma Exploration

~ Inner Journey to Hidden Treasures ~

A monthly Dharma Exploration with the
Aloka Vihara Monastics

San Francisco Dharma Collective

The Aloka Vihara monastics practice the early Buddhist teachings, which offer a radical perspective on how best to turn our everyday challenges into energy for awakening. The monastics embrace and integrate the realities of contemporary society into their lives and teachings. Their practice emphasizes insight into the principles that are at work, internal to and external to our own bodies, hearts, and minds.

These teachings will explore the cooling insight practices of the Four Establishments of Mindfulness (satipatthāna) and the warming heart practices of the Four Immeasurables (brahmavihara). At each meeting the monastics will choose a responsive and timely theme from these frameworks to share and explore together.
