What Makes Me Tick? An Exploration of Dependent Arising

Please note - this class has been cancelled for now.

Have you ever found yourself really ramped up about something--negative or positive--then suddenly you stop and wonder, "What the heck is going on? How'd I get here?!?!"

If you wonder at times, "What makes me tick? Why do I get caught up in these patterns that create so much suffering?", then join PIMC teacher, Doyle Banks, for a lively exploration into one of the Buddha's central and most important teachings--Dependent Arising (a.k.a. dependent origination, codependent origination, etc.).

This class is a natural next step for your learning and practice if you have participated in any of the following:

Basics of Mindfulness with Doug Pullin
Mindfulness With Heart Meditation Class with Doug Pullin
The Noble Eightfold Path with Christine Gieben & Gregory Maloof
The Four Foundations of Mindfulness with Robert Beatty
Robert's 1-year or 2-year training programs
or any similar class on Mindfulness and/or the Dharma.

Doyle will guide you through the terminology, theory and--most importantly--the practical daily application of this important teaching.

Tuesday evenings, 6:30-8:30pm for eight (8) weeks, beginning Tuesday, January 24. Classes will be held in the Living Room area of the center.


Class schedule: (Tuesdays, 6:30pm - 8:30pm) 1/24, 1/31, 2/7, 2/14*, 2/21, 2/28, 3/7, 3/14. (* The class will vote as a group on whether or not to meet on Valentine's Day, 2/14.)
