Paramita is often translated as “other shore” – symbolizing a crossing over from a sense of personal cultivation and fulfillment to also include a genuine concern for the well being of all.
During this online course we will dive fully into each paramita, including plenty of time for group process, discussion and exploration of what it really means to dial down self-importance and allow our hearts, energy and attention to become available to others.
The workshop will include lectures, discussion, meditation instruction & practice.
All class will proceed through an English to Japanese interpreter.
Open to all.
