The Heart of the Matter with Pema Chödrön via ZOOM – Part 2

 

Starting wherever you find yourself now, you can unravel your personal preoccupations and discover your innate potential for compassion, love, and wisdom.

This is part 2 of a two-part course series.  Part 2 includes six weekly Tuesday evening classes via zoom, beginning  March 5, 2024.

 

Course Overview

This course is based on a series of talks by Pema Chödrön that was filmed in the intimate setting of Gampo Abbey.  Each class includes a video talk by Pema, followed by group discussion.

As her theme for the course, Pema uses a short Buddhist text especially close to her heart, Thirty-Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva. This classic text, which could be said to summarize the major themes of Pema’s teachings over the years, presents ways that we can work with our own hearts and minds. Starting wherever you find yourself now, you can unravel your personal preoccupations and discover your innate potential for compassion, love, and wisdom. In her usual down-to-earth and practical language, Pema uses this text as a lens to offer new teachings.

Part 2 topics include:

  • The Power of Letting Go
  • Pleasant and Unpleasant
  • The Six Paramitas
  • Awake in the Moment

 

Our Generosity Policy

In order to make our programs accessible to everyone, we have a “pay what you can afford” policy. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please decide what works for you and offer whatever you can.

For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a “patron price”. Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
