Many of us have a strong wish to benefit others, yet, despite our best intentions, we can sometimes feel our actions have little effect on the world around us.

How is it possible in these uncertain times, to not only find innovative ways to transcend ‘compassion fatigue’ but also find tried and trusted methods that guarantee our ability to make a meaningful difference to everyone we encounter?

In this new six-part series of classes, we will be looking at the Buddhist practice of the six perfections.

The six perfections are six special methods to fully realize our human potential to benefit others with every thought and action.

This special intention has been called “the source of peace and happiness for all living beings.”  Through developing this extraordinary wish, our mind becomes expansive and peaceful, filled with love, and our daily problems begin to lessen.

 
In these classes Bob will explain how to brings these 6 practices into our lives so they become our way of life, a happier more fulfilling life.  We also gain a great ability to benefit others, leading them away from their suffering and towards experiences of real happiness and freedom.
This is a practical based course where practices and methods will be explained enabling you to establish the internal tools to bring about positive inner transformation. Each session will include a combination of teachings and meditation. Suitable for beginners and everyone welcome.
