Calgary Talk: Beyond Mindfulness: Becoming a Work of Art
July 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MDT
Beyond Mindfulness: Becoming a Work of ArtPublic Talk in Calgary, Alberta | July 5, 2019
Have you ever felt that the inner work you do is unappreciated? More often, our culture values and recognizes the beauties of the external world. In fact, the inner work is the art of making ourselves into works of art – unique masterpieces of bliss, wisdom, and radiant compassion.
Gain the inspiration and tools you need to let your raw talent shine, in this talk by master artists of the inner world.
Beyond Mindfulness: Becoming a Work of Art
Join Doug and Catherine Senseis to explore six aspects of consciousness that have been refined by the buddhist practitioners for more than two thousand years. These six aspects are called the Paramis (perfections) in Sanskrit, and they are the blueprint to becoming your own inner and outer work of art.
Are the Paramis Relevant Today?
Every meditative practice in our tradition, at some point, leads back to these Paramis, also known as “The Six Perfections”. They offer a flawless path that carries us straight to spiritual enlightenment.
It’s a simple, beautiful, and powerful path that offers a refuge in these busy, information-heavy times.
Is this for you?
This class is for you if you’re looking for simple tools to transform challenging states and to train your mind to be brighter, lighter, and more joyful.
The Dharma Hub will be offering follow up sessions in the coming weeks and months, where you’ll also have the opportunity continue your understanding of the Paramis.
