Ehipassiko — Come and See for Yourself


Core Dharma—Awakening the Luminosity of the Three Jewels
Gina Sharpe
Wednesdays: September 4, 11, 18 / This course is in progress; registration is closed

September 18, 2013
07:00 pm - 09:00 pm

We are always taking refuge in something--whether it is the Path or our ambition, our house, our money, our relationship. In all of the Buddhist traditions, taking refuge in the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha provides a focus for our commitment to the Path—a basis for taking the leap from old mental habits of grudges, fear, belief in scarcity and lethargy to generosity, courage and love. 

In this course we will learn to use the three jewels with wisdom—as support for remembrance, for recollection, for mindfulness.  Developing devotion to Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha in the here and now, they become tools for mindfulness, rather than symbols for belief. Together, we will use meditation, reflection, and interaction to more deeply penetrate and understand the luminosity of the three jewels and their indispensability in our awakening.


Teacher support: Suggested starting donation is $15 per session but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.  All donations go to support the teacher(s).
