About the Class

Joy flavors everything in the Buddha's teachings, right from the start.  What the Buddha taught is "visible here and now, not subject to time, inviting all to come and see, leading onward, to be known by the wise for themselves."

So why wait?  Find joy now!

Come and see for yourself, through reading, discussion and meditation in action, the experience of living a joyous life "for the welfare of many people, for the happiness of many people, out of compassion for the world, for the good, welfare, and happiness of heavenly beings and humans."


David Kerrigan was first drawn to the Buddha's teachings as a way to "love your neighbor as  yourself."  With varying levels of accuracy, he has practiced the Buddha''s path for the last 38 years and has fallen deeper and deeper in love.  He profoundly enjoys sharing this delightful way of compassion, wisdom and joy.
