Learn methods to find inner peace and solve our problems in the midst of busy modern life. This course will explain how we can transform all our daily activities into the Bodhisattva’s path to enlightenment.
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.
This half day course will comprise of practical teachings and meditations to help us learn to integrate these trainings into busy modern life.
Following on from the half day course, in the afternoon (3-5pm) there will be an optional Bodhisattva Vow Ceremony open to all who wish to attend. Taking this vow empowers our training in the six perfections and formalises our commitment to the path to enlightenment.
