An event every week that begins at 3:00pm on Sunday, repeating until August 27, 2017
A Five Week Class Series with Devon Cresci and Enrique Collazo
It is said that when the Buddha was asked if community was an important part of the spiritual life, the Buddha replied that it was the whole of the spiritual life. As we integrate dharma practices into Western culture this is a piece that is often missing- creating dharma orphans who come and sit together but may not feel connected to those they sit with. If you have been feeling an interest in deepening your practice with community then this 5 week class is for you. We will be focusing on developing skills that support right living in connection with others. Specifically by developing increased self-awareness, intimacy, compassion, diversity and social justice/engaged Buddhism and ethical decision making.
Open to all.
Cost: $20 per class or $90 if paid before first class, plus dana (donation) to support the teacher. Scholarships are available. No one turned away for lack of funds.
