Igniting the Heart: Awakening Compassion to Transform Your World

This program is offered online via Zoom • Presented by the Sonoma Shambhala Center

Igniting the Heart: Awakening Compassion to Transform Your World
A course on the Six Realms taught by Pema Chödrön

Facilitated by Rachel Anderson and Mike Hyman

Pema’s talks were recorded at the Omega Institute in 2016

This online program has no prerequisites and all are welcome


Are you tired of being hooked by your emotions? In this course, Pema Chödrön and Tim Olmsted explore how emotions manifest in our lives and how to move fluidly through them without getting caught.

Our emotions color how we see and experience the world. An angry mind sees an angry world. A fearful mind sees a threatening world. But when mind is stable, we see a world that is open, fluid, workable, moveable.

Using the Buddhist teachings on the six realms of existence as a framework, Pema Chödrön teaches that our common psychological states of anger, craving, ignorance, dissatisfaction, jealousy, and obliviousness are an unavoidable part of being human. While the strong emotions associated with the realms can be overwhelming, learning to work with them skillfully can open the door to true freedom.

Don’t wait for the right time, the right situation, the right you. The path of meditative awareness that sparks transformation is available right now. Join Pema to ignite your heart so it glows for the benefit of everyone around you.

What you will learn:

  • Recognize: Learn about the psychological states of mind known in Buddhism as the six realms
  • Process: Start working with your lived experiences of the realms
  • Stabilize: Bring meditative awareness to the states of mind that imprison you
  • Transform: Uncover the pure realms, where you experience life but are not trapped by it
  • Discover: Find the freedom that’s always present in every moment
