Introduction to the Bodhisattva Path of Wisdom and Compassion

with Mark Blumenfeld & Ron Wilcox
February 19 / 7:00 PM - March 26 / 9:00 PM

This class is an opportunity for students to explore the Buddhist practices and views that support the development and deepening of kindness and compassion.  We will examine the innate potential for human kindness that we all share, and how it can be worked as the ground to cultivate compassion. 

Key topics that we will cover include:

  • Meditation and the development of sympathetic kindness

  • Working with emotions

  • Practices that cultivate compassion

  • The six perfections of the Bodhisattva

  • Development of Insight

  • Cultivating how to be a help and not be a hindrance

The class is designed for both new and experienced students.  There are no prerequisites, just an interest in the topic and a desire to practice meditation. 

Each class with have a guided meditation, a talk on a topic and discussion.
