This difficult and dangerous time inspires an aspiration to be more wakeful in our lives to help ourselves and our world, and at the same times requires both bravery and skillfulness to do so.
The word bodhisattva means “awake being.” On the path of the bodhisattva warrior there is a tradition of training the mind based on the understanding that whatever occurs in our life is not considered an interruption or an obstacle, but a way to wake up. There are specific instructions on how to use the unwanted, unforeseeable circumstances of our lives as the actual material for awakening.
The wisdom and skillfulness these instructions contain are both timeless and extremely timely. In this zoom retreat, let’s explore together their profundity and application to the real situations we are facing day to day.
