This course introduces the traditional Buddhist teachings on the paramitas. The Sanskrit word paramita  means to cross over to the other shore. The paramitas are: Generosity, Discipline, Patience, Exertion, Meditation and Wisdom. They offer a clear and insightful way of understanding ourselves and our world, and a practice that can lead to wise and compassionate living.

For many of us, these awake qualities of the heart are obscured by delusion, selfishness, and other habitual tendencies. In this course, we will learn how to re-awaken these qualities and use them to uplift our own lives and the lives of others.
This program will combine meditation, contemplation, experiential exercises, discussion, and talks by the teacher so that students may discover a personal connection to these profound heart practices.

Our Generosity Policy: We have a policy to make our programs accessible to everyone. If the program price is an obstacle, please offer whatever you can.

For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a “patron price” of $130.

Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.  Any amount offered above the Program Price is considered a charitable donation to the centre, and will be included in a tax receipt issued by email in February of the following year.
