Buddhist Teacher JoAnn Fox

JoAnn Fox has been teaching Buddhism for 17 years. She shares the teachings of the Buddha with humor, practicality, and compassion. She has studied many of the great works of the Tibetan Mahayana lineage, but tries to convey the teachings in a modern and simple way.

 

The lineage of the teachings

Buddha

Buddha Shakyamuni taught 2500 years ago. His teachings are as relevant today as they were then. We are currently studying the Dhammapada, which contains the actual words of Buddha written down shortly after his death. Buddha asked that we never simply accept the teachings, but test them with our own experience and wisdom. We can discover for ourselves what leads to peace and what leads to pain and confusion.

 

Atisha

Atisha was an Indian Mahayana Buddhist master. Atisha taught the Mahayana path which shows us how to develop universal compassion and wisdom, the keys to unlocking our Buddha nature. Universal compassion and the path of the Bodhisattva are what differentiates this type of Buddhism from others.

 

Tibetan Teachers & Practitioners

Together we will study the teachings of Buddha as they passed from India to Tibet to us today. We will study Indian and Tibetan teachers such as Shantideva, Tsongkhapa and Geshe Chekawa. For 2500 years monks, nuns, and lay people practiced Buddhism by applying the teachings to their own life. These teachers offer different ways of practicing to achieve inner peace, compassion and wisdom.
