Most people associate Dharma practice with the concept of Wisdom. Here, the idea is that we need to “know” something that we don’t already know. For English thinking minds this can become very problematic and can turn our practice into a cognitive or intellectual endeavor. With the earliest teachings of the Dharma we see that the Buddha outlines two separate paths to liberation. One thru wisdom, the other thru heart. During this practice session we will explore and discuss the implications and process of liberation thru our hearts, emotions and behaviors. As the wisdom path has been primarily developed for the monastic communities over the last almost 3000 years, what does this mean for the rest of us? How can we living in the complexity of modern times develop a meaningful practice that will remove the obstacles to liberation, freedom and genuine happiness? As always, don’t take my word for it, come and see for yourself.
