Buddha In My Facebook Feed Returns Sunday, February 4 With "Breath, Energy Winds & Chakras - In The Age of Quantum Physics"
Free Class To Explore The Connection Between Consciousness and Physicality This Week, Sunday February 4, 2 pm to 4 pm.
Buddha In My Facebook Feed is a free community course offered by The Healing Arts Center and taught by HAC president, Dave Kenyon. The purpose of the course is to examine the Buddhist ontological model in a non-religious light to explore its relevance in the Digital Age. Kenyon, has been a Buddhist practitioner in the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism for nearly twenty-four years and has received teachings and empowerments from a variety of great masters including His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
The class is designed to dig into Buddhist concepts such as bodhicitta (enlightened mind), sunyata (emptiness) and karma (causation) from a modern ontological point of view. For example, nearly every religion talks about the value of compassion, but what does compassion actually do for social interactions and one's own personal experience? What is the karma of social media? Is it really making us sick in mind and even in body?
This week's topic "Breath, Energy Winds & Chakras - In The Age of Quantum Physics" will look at one of the most fundamental questions in all of human science and philosophy. Where does conscious end and physicality begin? Does the physical world actually exist? What are the implications of Simulation Theory in the age of Quantum Mechanics and was this previously taught in the Buddhist model of consciousness for that past 2,500 years?
Buddha In My Facebook Feed is a deep dive into the modern implications of an ancient model of consciousness. The course covers a wide variety of topics from the study of Buddhism, ontology, psychology, sociology, biology and physics and offers insight into a wide range of ancient and modern beliefs and practices.
The class is open to everyone and attendance at previous classes, while helpful, is not required. Most of the conversations can be picked up without prior attendance. Additional resources can be found on the HAC website (click here).
