Transforming our hearts and minds to abide in more spacious wisdom and grounded compassion takes training. This 8-class course will offer us two months to explore a text and its associated practices in depth.

Perfect for those of us out in the world, the text comprises pithy and direct aphorisms that get directly to the point with practical advices.
