Awakening Our Potential

We all have an extraordinary potential for enlightenment – a state of limitless peace, love and wisdom through which we can be of immeasurable benefit to others and to our world. The best way to awaken and actualize this potential is to emulate the life of a bodhisattva, a being committed to attaining enlightenment for the sake of all living beings. In this course we will learn how we can make our own present life resemble the life of a bodhisattva and thereby awaken our own extraordinary potential. In particular we will learn some of the special practices of a Bodhisattvas such as the six perfections and the amazing practice of taking and giving.

  • Mar 28      Taking and Giving
  • Apr 11        Living with an Open, Good Heart
  • Apr 18       Tuning into Enlightenment
  • Apr 25       Living as a Hero
  • May 2        Freedom Through Wisdom


Each class will consist of guided meditations and clear explanations, as well as an opportunity to ask questions. Everyone welcome!
