The Six Perfections: A Path to Inner Joy – ONLINE

With Rosalyn White

July 22 - August 26, 2020

Wednesdays, 5:00-6:30 pm PST, July 22-August 26

The Buddha taught that there are six qualities that we must develop if we wish to transcend suffering and find inner joy. They are called the Six Perfections, which are generosity, virtue, patience, vigor, meditation and wisdom. The first four teach us how to develop compassion and the last two help us to embody the wisdom that is needed to act selflessly and effectively. In this six-session series, we will work with a different perfection each week, with group discussions on what these qualities mean to us.  We will practice Tibetan yoga, as well as chanting, related to each quality, and each class will end with a short meditation session to help integrate the experiences.
