Five Spiritual Qualities of Heart and Mind: Energy/Effort, Patience, Truthfulness, and Determination — Part 2

8-Week Class Series

For people in the modern world who are wrestling with the issue of how to practice the Dhamma in daily life, the Perfections provide a useful framework for developing a fruitful attitude toward daily activities. Any activity or relationship undertaken wisely, with the primary purpose of developing the perfections, in a balanced way, becomes part of the practice.

In this 8-week class series, we will study and explore five noble qualities of heart and mind as a skillful means in formulating the purpose of one’s life and freeing oneself from craving, conceit, and limiting opinions.

Classes will consist of meditation, dharma talks, discussion, Q&A, and mindful inquiry.
