The Four Noble Truths

In his very first teaching, the historical Buddha pointed out the obvious: life is full of suffering. He then taught what have come to be known as "the four noble truths," essentially a roadmap to navigate that suffering. Join teachers Stephen Batchelor, Christina Feldman, John Peacock, and Akincano Weber, who invite us to critically investigate these four truths for ourselves, seeing how they manifest in our own lived experience and apply to our modern world.
