Inward Practice, Outward Action: Living the Paramis

Saturday, January 25 @ 9:00 am - Sunday, January 26 @ 4:00 pm

For most of us, the time we spend meditating, attending dharma talks, and going on retreats is a small fraction of our lives. We see urgent needs and distress in the world and often wonder if our practice is effectively translating into the action required to respond effectively. Buddhism identifies a set of innate human qualities that are both the natural expressions of the awakened heart as well as forces of character that can be developed and relied upon right within the intensity of everyday life in the world. In this weekend retreat, we will explore together how we might use the Ten Paramis —qualities like resolve, patience, truthfulness, equanimity — as both an inward cultivation and as a template for wise action in the world.
