Day Course: Four Truths for Modern Life

Understanding Buddha's teaching on the Four Noble Truths

Saturday, March 2nd • 10:30am - 3pm • $25 (FP & TTP Discounts Apply)

with Resident Teacher, Sarah Frew

Everyone Welcome, no experience necessary


Session 1 • 10:30am- 12pm

Lunch • 12 - 1:30pm

Session 2 • 1:30 - 3pm

In his very first teaching, the Sutra of the Four Noble Truths, Buddha explained clearly how we can understand the true nature of suffering and how to abandon its causes:

You should know sufferings.
You should abandon origins.
You should attain cessations.
You should practise the path.

In order to eradicate our suffering, we must first understand where it comes from. Through training the mind using Buddha’s teachings on the Four Noble Truths, we can learn how to fully eliminate all of our suffering and its causes, and discover lasting inner peace and happiness.

On this course, Resident Teacher Sarah Frew will offer practical advice on how we can apply the Four Noble Truths to our daily lives and use them to solve the problems we encounter in the modern world.
