The CSS Foundations Studies Course is offered once every year, and runs from the beginning of October to the first week of August. Foundation Studies is a prerequisite for attending the regular practitioners groups.
The course is an introduction to, and cultivation of the fundamental teachings and practices of the major mystical traditions, including practices of meditation and precepts.
The 2017-2018 Foundation Studies class is taught by Todd Corbett with Luke Weiss (through April). It normally meets at CSS at 7 pm on most Tuesdays. Veteran practitioners are welcome to enroll in the class.
For actual meeting dates, times, and locations, please see the CSS calendar. If you are going to be absent from the meetings, please let the teacher know in advance.
The text for the course is Joel's book, The Way of Selflessness. The course curriculum also includes other supporting readings, as well as monthly videos, shown on the first Sunday of each month as part of the CSS public program.
Our first meeting will be a Community Night on Wednesday September 27th from 7-8:30, hosted by Joel in conjunction with the other teachers and open to attendance by the entire CSS community of practitioners. Our first actual Foundation Studies class will be held the following Tuesday at the Center.
