DHARMA AND MEDITATION INTENSIVE
LIVE IN VIDEO CONFERENCE ON THE ZOOM PLATFORM entitled:
Patience: The Practice of Wise Receptivity
we think of patience, as enduring without complaint or being able to stay calm. However, Frank will help us to explore a deeper understanding. We will learn what leads to impatience and how patience is not simply a discipline or only a virtue. It is a way of not returning harm. Patience is an act of love.
WEDNESDAY 7 OCTOBER from 8 pm to 21.30 pm. Participation in the live meeting is reserved for AMeCo Members.
BOOKINGS ARE RECEIVED FROM THE 21st OF SEPTEMBER
