December 8 @ 5:00 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)

Join us for a weekend of Dharma talks and guided practice exploring the “Seven Point Cause-Effect Method,” a time-honored, organic process for nurturing bodhicitta, the Brave Heart of Awakening. The Method is this:

• Opening to kinship
• Honoring kindness
• Returning gratitude
• Touching into affection
• Kindling compassion
• Exceptional resolve
• Brave heart of awakening

Supported by integrative practice, the Buddha’s contemplative technology (comprised of the depth practice of listening, contemplating, and meditating), we will develop an accurate understanding of the method; discuss our doubts and aspirations with respect to its practice and efficacy; and engage in experiential analysis to plumb the depths of the Brave Heart of Awakening as it is, here and now, and yet to be.

Practitioners will receive supplementary resources and will have ample opportunity to listen, contemplate, and meditate throughout our time together. This teaching is open to everyone.

Weekend Schedule: Friday, December 8 (5 – 6:30 p.m.)
Saturday, December 9 (10 a.m. – noon and 2 – 4 p.m.)
Sunday, December 10 (8:30 – 9:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. – noon)
