Doing the ABPE course has been one of the best decisions of my life. It opened my heart and mind in ways I did not imagine was possible. Every aspect has been thoughtfully designed – from the course material to the weekly practice assignments. The course covers the basics of Buddhist thought and practice, while providing a blueprint for deeper engagement. Our teacher, Ms. Asha, was a gentle yet firm guide. She skillfully supported the diverse class through concepts that can potentially get overwhelming. All in all, this course is a solid springboard into Buddhist thought and practice for those who wish to engage with the ocean that is Buddhism.
