Between the impact of multiple climate catastrophes, food instability, war, homophobia, racism, and paternalism, we are living in a wounded world – but we don’t have to fall apart under its weight.
Our next 4-week live & interactive course will be led by Leslie Booker (Booker), who brings her heart to the intersection of Dharma, Embodied Wisdom, and Liberation. Through practices around the Paramis, we will learn how to turn towards the world’s suffering, and remember that we belong to each other.
In Buddhist teachings, the 10 Paramis are known as the perfections, or attainments of heart and mind. In this course we’ll focus on resolve, patience, equanimity and metta, with guest appearances by the other Paramis of generosity, virtue, renunciation, wisdom, energy and truthfulness. These attainments can be the medicine for both our liberation and our survival. We’ll explore their power through formal meditation practice, journaling, embodiment practices, and group discussion.
This journey will offer participants:
- A balm for the wounds brought on by systems of harm and oppression
- Liberation practices for both on and off cushion
- Opportunity to explore not just what the Buddha said, but how he lived and learned
