If there is one practice that defines the quality of the Buddha’s teachings, it is right view. This is a wisdom path. Right view is the beginning and ending of the path. Right view comes first among the eight path factors because it is needed for the entire path. Right view can be described as a quality, as a practice, and as a result of that practice. The result of the practice of right view is right view, or discernment, insight, knowing, knowledge, understanding, and clear seeing. Greg’s teaching will explore right view as a practice we can engage in by way of meditation and throughout our everyday lives.

    Through the cultures within family, education and work, we are constantly orientated towards ‘realistic’ expectations and visions for our lives. Dharma practice asks us to abandon the realistic in favour of the real; listening deeply to life and to how things actually are, so as to respond wisely and lovingly, fully and freely. In this…
