The path of the Bodhisattva Warrior begins with developing affection for ourselves and expands this to others, dissolving the barriers that divide us. To support this practice, the Shambhala Acharyas have offered to lead the community in a year long series of talks, contemplative and meditation practices from the Buddhist Mahayana teachings of our lineage.

The theme for this first series of classes, "The Four Immeasurables," is Tiger: friendly to self and merciful to others.

The class will cover topics including Shamatha and Maitri, Tonglen, Equanimity, Loving Kindness, Compassion, and Sympathetic Joy. Each week we will show a video featuring a senior teacher, provide readings and book suggestions to deepen our understanding of these teachings, and contemplations to help us integrate these fundamental teachings into our daily lives.

The class will meet three more Tuesday evenings  May 28th, June 4 and June11

Drop-ins are welcome, the suggested donation is $20 per class.

* Pay what you can afford

In order to make our programs accessible to everyone, we have a “pay what you can afford” policy.  If the program price is an obstacle for you, please decide what works for you and offer whatever you can. You may write in that amount in the "Notes" when you register online & pay on Friday evening.

For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a “patron price”. Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
