Becoming a Friend of the World: Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:15pm with Marta Dormal

Buddha’s example of peace and compassion has made a lasting impression in the world and inspired many people to enter a spiritual path. By following in his footsteps, we too can discover a life of great meaning and benefit others through training in six essential practices that form the Buddhist path to enlightenment. These six practices are known as the six perfections and include the practices of giving, moral discipline, patience, effort, concentration and wisdom, motivated by the supreme good heart known as bodhichitta.

During this summer season meditation class, we will explore Buddha’s teachings on how we can transform all our daily activities into the Bodhisattva’s path to enlightenment. This series in July will begin the journey, and the series in August will continue with teachings on the six perfections.
