This program asks the question, “What is Real?” and focuses on a study of the phenomenal world. It emphasizes some of the core Buddhist teachings, such as impermanence, the process of perception, the "mind", and emptiness.  It is oriented towards the experience of the magic and wonder of nature. Program consists of talks, reflection, discussion and meditation.
