Being Bodhisattvas: Practicing in the Flames, GGF
“Being Bodhisattvas: Practicing in the Flames" is a workshop for both those new to Buddhist practice as well as experienced practitioners. We will spend the day together exploring ancient and current teachings of the Bodhisattva Path, ways in which we lead our lives by compassion, generosity, patience, ethical conduct, and helping to alleviate the suffering of others through meditation, insight and caring.
Though the teachings are timeless, there is an urgent need at this time to respond with awareness and increased compassion to the flames of fear, anger, division and degradation erupting on out planet.
How do we not turn away from this burning world? How do we cultivate a ground of peace and ease in our own hearts and minds as we live and serve each other in our world?
The workshop will include meditation, dialog, walking in the Green Gulch Garden and creative fun to explore what it is to embody these Bodhisattva practices. It will be a day of enlivening, refreshing, and deepening our lives and hearts.
“The Bodhisattvas help us to see ourselves. They also help us appreciate the world around us, and our place in it, including how we may be called to help change society.” —Taigen Dan Leighton, Faces of Compassion
