Precepts Mondo

with Jody Hojin Kimmel, Sensei

March 20, 2019

Honor the body; Do not misuse sexuality


The moral and ethical teachings of the Buddha touch every area of our lives. The extent to which these principles permeate our relationships and actions is enhanced by our understanding of them. This new series of Q&A style monthly mondos features MRO teachers facilitating open discussions about the Ten Grave Precepts as they relate to lay practice.

The Precepts Mondos offer an opportunity to work more informally with the MRO teachers and are open to all practitioners.

Suggested donation $10-$15.
