A Year of Compassion Part I

Facilitators:  Valerie Morvan and Cheri Tiernan

Class Price:  $130 or offer what you can afford

This 5-session class will use on-line teachings with commentary and discussion facilitation by Valerie Morvan and Cheri Tiernan. The class includes an introduction to The Four Limitless Ones, Tonglen instruction and an audio talk by Acharya Pema Chodron. The Four Limitless Ones are early Buddhist teachings on four boundless qualities, which literally have “no measure.” These qualities are equanimity, loving-kindness, compassion and sympathetic joy. By dissolving the boundaries that constrain us, these four qualities expand our capacity for experiences on the path.

The topics for the 5 classes and the acharyas teaching them are listed below. Additionally, there will be readings and book suggestions to deepen our understanding of these teachings and contemplations to help us integrate these fundamental teachings into our daily lives.

This is the first course of the four-part series entitled A Year of Compassion, which explores Shambhala Mahayana teachings. The full 4-part series will be facilitated at the Atlanta Center.
