Sutta Study Class

The Sutta study class is for yogis who have practised for at least three years with Nirodha.  Yogis can apply for the course and they are selected based on relevance for their practice.  Current yogis in the class have completed one or more 21 day retreats along with 7 or 8 other retreats.  This is an advanced course where Dhamma is discussed in-depth and the program is designed to provide a supportive foundation for their meditation practice rather than encouraging dry scholarship.
