Smoothing the Rough Edges - Class Series

White Lotus

The Paramis, Ten Perfections, are a helpful model to follow as we deepen in our practice. 

Generosity (dana), Virtue (sila), Renunciation (nekkhamma), Wisdom (pañña), Energy (viriya), Patience (khanti), Truthfulness (sacca), Determination (aditthana), Lovingkindness (metta), Equanimity (upekkha)

Class includes discussion about how to understand and  evoke these inner qualities.  Daily practice can help these become a way of living.

The class will be taught by  Kim Weeber.
