Higher Truths & Advanced Understandings

Buddhist Recovery Academy : March 3rd, 2024

The Buddha’s first official teaching was given to ‘noble ones’, that is the five ascetics who trained alongside Gautama, seeking an end to the suffering of this existence and an end to future rebirths. 

The way out of suffering, the Buddha said, was the Middle Way; the middle path between the extremes of sensual existence. The first and most critical step of the Middle Way is appropriate understanding. And the first things we need to understand correctly are the realities and possibilities of being human.

Join me to explore what an advanced understanding of what the ‘true’ realities of existence are and what an appropriate response might be in both our mental attitude and our engagement with the spectrum of sensuality. 

A selection of previous talks can be seen here on Vince’s YouTube Channel.
