A Shedra Student

The atmosphere is so welcoming at the Shedra , it feels like home. This is my first formal education in Buddhism and I cannot think of a better place than RYI. The whole Shedra experience has been and is very over whelming. Personally, I feel that the classes are […]

Reading week

At the middle of the semester, it is always good to take a little bit of rest from all the study, which is why we have reading week. But for some reason, this week is not called “relaxing week”. For sure, we all like to relax a little bit, but if they call it “relaxing week”, we may […]
