Deepening Compassion: Part II

The Joyful Snow Lion: the Paramitas, is the second course of the four-part series exploring the Shambhala Mahayana teachings. This course includes an exploration of the awakened heart and how we put our aspiration into action with the practice of the Paramitas. Each class will begin with a half-hour of meditation practice, followed by a talk and concluding with a half-hour of discussion among our local participants.

It also includes:

  • Five live online classes with an Acharya with an opportunity for Q&A.
  • The classes will be recorded, and each will be led by a different Acharya.
  • Access to the recordings will be available in the course, if you miss a session.
  • A live discussion led by the Acharyas. 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.
