What does living a compassionate life look like in practice? How do we generate meaning in a way that also helps build resilient community? According to the 11th century Buddhist meditation master Gampopa, author of The Jewel Ornament of Liberation, the secret to living a compassionate life (individually and communally) can be condensed into six traits: Generosity, Integrity, Patience, Grit, Mindfulness, and Wisdom..
Residential only. Registration is open. Buddhist traditions often understand the Dharma as inexpressible, a teaching that transcends the realm of language. Teachers and practitioners, however, have long turned to poetry as a literary form that can express and evoke their experience and wisdom and to help others along the path.
