Bodhi College is an educational organisation dedicated to contemplative learning. It has as its focus an exploration of the dharma as found in the earliest Buddhist texts through courses combining study and retreats.
This online course explores the key ideas and practices of secular Buddhism, based on Stephen Batchelor’s recent book, After Buddhism: rethinking the dharma for a secular age, and the companion book published by The Tuwhiri Project, After Buddhism: a workbook, by Winton Higgins.
This eight-part course uses recorded talks by Stephen Batchelor and Roshi Joan Halifax in which they rebuild the standard ‘Four Noble Truths’ of Buddhism from the ground up, rendering them as noble tasks.
You may have tried to study Pali on your own at home, using one of the grammars available on the internet. It’s not easy, right? Well, there are currently two online course offers that will give you a better shot at it.
