Drop-Ins Welcome

This study course is a great way to develop one's knowledge of Buddhism's amazing array of philosophies, morality, and practical life lessons. It will cover a range of foundational topics in Buddhist philosophy from a variety of traditions and perspectives. Each week there will be assigned readings and homework that the group will be expected to complete before class. This course will also serve as a support for you to develop and sustain a daily meditation practice.

Robert Chender is a student of the late Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and is a senior teacher at IDP and at the Shambhala Meditation Center of New York.  He frequently speaks to groups about the application of meditation practice to our daily work life, and serves as director of the Contemplative Lawyers Group of the NY City Bar Association.  He has also taught about the relationship between Buddhist and shamanic practices.  He is very happy to be on the board of IDP.
