Motivation, Wisdom And Compassionate Activity
with John Baker and the Westchester Buddhist Center
Tuesday evenings, June 30th through September 1, 2020
“The Way of the Buddha—Meditation and Insight” is a year-long foundation-level course in 3 semesters (Winter 2020, Spring 2020, Fall 2020).
Join us for Semester 3: The Path of the Bodhisattva—Motivation, Wisdom and Compassionate Activity, an exploration of the path of mindfulness-awareness meditation and insight as originally described by the Buddha and skillfully transmitted to the West by one of the great Tibetan masters of our time, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
The ten classes of this third semester will cover the major aspects of the Mahayana Buddhist path of the Bodhisattva including compassionate activity, known as the six paramitas or transcendent virtues and the development of wisdom, as well as the practice of tonglen, “sending and receiving.” As always, our focus will be on the how to embody these teachings, bring them into our daily lives, and share them with our world.
Led by John Baker, Barry Cunningham and Laura Read from June 30 through September 1, 2020, all sessions begin with group meditation, with instruction offered in a separate Zoom room for those who wish it. Students are encouraged to enroll for the entire semester, however, one can attend individual classes on a ‘drop-in’ basis.
