Want to make a difference in the lives of others and the world? Developing compassion and helping others is a practical path to authentic peace in our society.

Oct - The World Needs Bodhisattvas
What can I do about the problems of the world? How can I respond to the pain and suffering in my heart, and that I see all around me?
At a time where the uncertainty and chaos of life can feel overwhelming, the world needs people who are dedicated to their spiritual development for the benefit of others. This type of person is called a Bodhisattva. A Bodhisattva is someone who is dedicated to the service of others, and recognizes that authentic change begins within.
In particular, a Bodhisattva is motivated by a wish to reach their highest spiritual potential for the benefit of all beings. Each of us can use our life to train in becoming this kind of extraordinary individual, a person absolutely determined to effect deep and authentic changes in their own heart for the benefit of the entire world.
In this course, we will explore the six main practices of someone training in the Bodhisattva’s way of life: generosity, discipline, patient acceptance, spiritual effort, meditation and wisdom. This special autumn course can give us direction and purpose at this challenging time.
