In this class we investigate the profound and penetrating teachings of this classic Buddhist text dating to the fifth century. The Buddha together with his disciple Subhuti guide us how to cut through the mind of dualistic thinking. In this class we reflect on the Diamond Sutra’s teaching on impermanence, selflessness, non-grasping and boundless awareness. Through meditation, movement practice and discussion this class embodies essential themes from the Diamond Sutra.
