The CSS Foundations Studies Course is offered once every year, and runs from the beginning of October to the first week of July. Foundation Studies is a prerequisite for attending the regular practitioners groups.
The course is an introduction to, and cultivation of the fundamental teachings and practices of the major mystical traditions, including practices of meditation and precepts.
The 2019-2020 Foundation Studies class is taught by Todd Corbett, assisted by Mora Fields. Veteran practitioners are welcome to enroll in the class.
For actual meeting dates, times, and locations, please see the CSS calendar. If you are going to be absent from the meetings, please let the teacher know in advance.
The text for the course is Joel's book, The Way of Selflessness. The course curriculum also includes other supporting readings, as well as monthly videos, shown on the first Sunday of each month as part of the CSS public program.
The first meeting will be on the first Community Night at the end of September, from 7-8:30, hosted by Joel in conjunction with the other teachers and open to attendance by the entire CSS community of practitioners. The first actual Foundation Studies class will be held the following week.
