Buddhist Practice in Six Simple Steps

   Watch Promo

This course is a guide to the elements and meaning of Buddhist practice. Not only the "how" but also the "why" will be covered. Here the emotional aspects will be emphasized rather than the academic. Through ritual will will see how we engage the body and effect the mind. We will feel oneness rather than merely understand it as a concept. The hope is that these simple lectures will help you design and develop a home practice that becomes a habit in your life. Something that is not only effective but also practical.

Instructor Rev. Jon Turner and his family first began attending Orange County Buddhist Church (OCBC) in 1999. Two years later he joined the Ministers’ Assistant Program (MAP) there. In 2010, Reverend Turner graduated from Institute of Buddhist Studies (IBS) in Berkeley, California, with a master’s degree in Buddhist Studies, and received Tokudo ordination. In 2012, he was ordained as a Kyoshi minister. After retiring from a 35 year career as a computer programmer, Reverend Turner became a fully ordained Kaikyoshi minister at OCBC in 2017.

"Throughout that time, I studied and practiced Buddhism very diligently. I have also stepped in every pothole, making every mistake one can make in understanding Buddhism. As a result, I think these experiences help me become a better teacher.”
