Class for Experienced Students with Tempel Smith

Class for Experienced Students on
Dependent Origination

 with Tempel Smith


Considered the highest teaching the Buddha offered, Dependent Origination describes the workings of karma, emptiness, non-self, conditionality, why we are stuck in samsara and how we truly break free. Yet very few students in North America have the opportunity to study these teachings, especially from a practice and experiential dimension.  During these three classes we will have a chance to explore Dependent Origination as it arises in our daily lives and how to use these teachings to break free of these imprisoning mental patterns.

Note: “Experienced Students” are those who have attended at least two residential retreats of 5 or more nights, in any Buddhist lineage.

Registration online is offered for those who prefer to pre-pay by card and is priced for the entire series of three.

Tempel Smith began practicing meditation in 1989 at Insight Meditation Society (IMS). He has taught meditation and Buddhist psychology since 2001 and is a senior teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center, leading retreats and directing their dedicated practitioner program.

Registration Information

Weekend retreats, classes and workshops at the Dharma Center have a 2-part “cost:”  Because the teachings are considered priceless and are to be supported by Dana (a voluntary, anonymous offering of no specified amount) we ask that you consider making a Dana offering to the teacher, in gratitude and support of the teachings – as best fits your circumstances and brings you joy in giving.

Secondly, we ask a sliding-scale registration fee to cover Tempel’s expenses and the cost of putting on the workshop.  Scholarships are always available and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.

Please enter the number of people you are registering in the box to the right of the rate you are opting to pay.
