Introduction to Buddhism classes 
This winter season, we are offering four classes that will focus on some key fundamental principles of Buddhism and introduce simple tools for transforming negative emotions, increasing one’s personal happiness and becoming a powerful condition for helping others. Each session will be an informal dharma discussion followed by short practice from The Buddha Path, a practice manual by Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche. Classes are at The Yoga Center–4689 South 2300 East (Holladay Blvd) at 7:00-8:30 pm.

December 6: The Four Noble Truths of the Enlightened

January 3: Creating good karma

January 31: Developing compassion

February 7: Practicing dharma in daily life

Everyone is welcome. No previous experience required. Drop in for any class, or plan to attend all four to deepen your practice. Suggested donation: $5.

This class will be taught by Joseph Evans (Orgyen Shiwo Dorje), who has been studying with Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche for 11 years, and has completed more than five months of retreat in the Dzogchen Shri Singha lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.
