The Path of Wisdom and Compassion
As human beings we all have immense positive yet unfulfilled potential for great goodness and clear wisdom. The Buddha’s teachings offer us a clear road to follow — from a state of confusion and unhappiness to one of greater clarity, kindness, and satisfaction in life. These positive qualities come from working with our minds — our attitudes and emotions — in order to affect a deep and lasting inner transformation.
Through teachings, meditations, and discussion, this weekend course will explore how we transform our minds by following a gradual path to full awakening, step by step, as individual practitioners. Where we start, what comes next, what comes after that, and so on.
(This course is suitable for those just beginning a Buddhist practice as well as for long-time practitioners.)
