The CSS Foundations Studies Course is offered once every year, from October to June or July. Completion of this course is a prerequisite for attending the regular practitioners group and Center retreats. This course is taught by a Center teacher, and it meets once a week most weeks. The course will introduce you to fundamental teachings and practices of all the major mystical traditions. The course curriculum includes instruction in spiritual practices such as meditation and precepts and reading Joel's book The Way of Selflessness. Optionally, you may also wish to supplement your learning experience with books from our list of recommended reading or the reading list for our distance studies course.
