FEATURED AS "NEW & NOTEWORTHY" BY APPLE 2013-2014 *** Urban Dharma NC is a new Buddhist center, a community-in-progress in western North Carolina. We are committed to the growing of Dharma, for Dharma to take roots in our lives here in this corner of the world, in this part of North Carolina, on the soil of these Appalachian mountains. Our motto "Changing Minds, Transforming Cities" expresses the vision of living the transformative teachings of the Buddha in a contemporary, urban context where we ground our lives in Dharma. Urban Dharma NC emphasizes integrating rather than compartmentalizing, engaging rather than retreating, communing rather than isolating. *** We believe that Buddhist teachings have much to offer, not only to those who self-identify as Buddhist, but more fundamentally to all who seek to live intentional, compassionate, and balanced lives. And we believe that we can do this best when we have a community that is welcoming open and supportive. *** Introductory topics include: meditation, mindfulness, stress reduction, Tibetan Buddhism, Chinese Buddhism *** Advanced topics include: Vajrayana, the Drikung Kagyu tradition, Chod, Milarepa, Tara, and more. *** Please report any issues with the podcast to firstname.lastname@example.org *** You may visit our website and donate via PayPal to support our work at http://tiny.cc/udncpodcast
