A Year of Deepening in Compassion: Part One

The path of compassion begins with developing affection for ourselves and expanding this to others, dissolving the barriers that divide us.  To support this practice, the Shambhala Acharyas – our most senior teachers worldwide - have offered to lead the community in a year-long series of talks as well as contemplative and meditation practices. Each session within the series will feature a talk by one of these remarkable teachers, as well as meditation and discussion.

The Four Limitless Ones, is the first course of the four-part series exploring the Shambhala Mahayana teachings. This course includes Tonglen instruction and an audio talk by Acharya Pema Chodron and an introduction to The Four Limitless Ones. It also includes:

  • Five live classes with an Acharya with an opportunity for Q&A.
  • The classes will be recorded, and each will be led by a different Acharya.
  • A live discussion led by the Acharya. Live discussions are not recorded.
  • Readings and book suggestions to deepen our understanding of these teachings
  • Contemplations to help us integrate these fundamental teachings into our daily lives
  • A discussion forum.
PLEASE NOTE: the class begins with an hour of meditation practice beginning at noon followed by the Achaya talk at 1pm.
