Wisdom & Discernment
An Enlighten-Up! Dharma Class
Enlighten-Up! are uncompromising, unflinching and kick-ass dharma classes. Vajrayana Teachers Qapel and Sensei present a new topic several times per year. Join online from anywhere in the world.
This month’s topic:
Wisdom and Discerment
The law of karma states that a result can’t be different than its cause. How do you make decisions with clarity and discernment? Qapel and Sensei will be giving a public dharma talk on Wisdom and Discernment on September 10th at 9am MST. Online or in-person.
Dharma Talks for 21st Century Life
The word ‘Dharma’ has many meanings, one being the ultimate truths of reality, and the universal laws of awakening. That’s lovely, but how do you bring these ancient perspectives into 21st century life?
These dharma classes are a way to bring kick-ass, applicable dharma into your life. Tune in to higher truths, with real-life Dharma teachers from wherever you might be in the world.
Qapel and Sensei are offering these classes several times a year on different topics. Themes will be thought provoking, inspiring and designed to ‘enlighten-up’ your world. In a world that has a tendency to ‘dumb down’ the complexities of wisdom, we promise not to.
There will also be an opportunity to share in small groups and to ask questions at the end of the class.
Video recordings are available for one week for those who cannot attend live.
These Enlighten-Up classes are open to all experience levels.
