Paths to Awakening
This six-week section of Buddhism by the Numbers will concentrate on paths to awakening particularly the path of compassion.
The two wings to awakening- compassion and wisdom-- evolve and develop simultaneously if our practice is balanced. In this class we will explore that balance and how it manifests in our life.
We will use as a text the latest book by Bhikkhu Analayo: Compassion and Emptiness.
Suitable for anyone who has completed an Insight 101 or Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course.
*Registration fee does not include teacher support.
