The Paramis are ten qualities that are said to be necessary for liberation and awakening. The good news is that they are very accessible and should be familiar to everyone. They include patience, generosity, wisdom, and determination among others. They are also extremely beneficial to use as we navigate these uncharted times and all the challenges being churned up. They provide a foundation and framework for us to use each day in meeting the world of 2020. Ajahn Sucitto says that the Paramis are instructions for finding a path out of stress and suffering.
In this half day we will look at each of the Paramis and their characteristics. There will also be time to identify what speaks to you in this teaching and to set an intention to cultivate what is most meaningful. There will be sitting practice, a dharma talk, conversation and a chance to share. There will be a break between morning and afternoon sessions.
Join us to uncover what Sylvia Boorstein calls, “the natural inclination of the human heart.”
