Bodhisattva Leadership: Cultivating Faith and Love
March - November 2019
THIS CLASS IS CURRENTLY FULL
We will take up an in-depth study and cultivation of the Three Refuges (Buddha, Dharma and Sangha,) and the Four Boundless Qualities of the Heart (metta, loving-kindness, karuna, compassion, mudita, selfless joy and upekkha, equanimity.) Our exploration will include dharma talks, interactive inquiry, personal sharing, readings, and between-sessions practices and reflections, with the aim of deepening our insight and understanding, and embodying the qualities of faith and love.
The heart of the program is the creation of a safe and loving community where we can be honest, courageous and vulnerable together.
The series includes: eight Saturday sessions also at SFZC on: 4/20, 5/18, 6/22, 7/20, 8/24, 10/19, & 11/16, an overnight retreat at Spirit House in Woodacre, CA: 9/27-29, two 30-minute, individual meetings with Pam, one at the beginning and one toward the end of the program, and peer-led group sessions each month. Space is limited to 18 people.
