What makes a meaningful life?
What do you know to be true?
What is the most important thing?
Come join us for a timely and inspiring exploration of enduring everyday heart practices that support and engage our lives with clarity, balance, and love. Drawing on the Buddha's teachings of the Paramis (the Perfections of the Heart), each two-hour session includes a talk, meditation, the gentle movement practice of qigong, along with time to talk with each other.
Grown out of the foundation of mindful awareness, the topics include: Generosity, Ethics, Letting Go, Wisdom, Energy, Patience, Truthfulness, Determination, Lovingkindness and Equanimity.
