Dharma Path Summer 2017 Seven-Week Self-Development Intensive | The Practices of a Bodhisattva

  • 11 Jul 2017
  • All locations


Registration is closed

July 11- August 29

The Summer 2017 Dharma Path Intensive will continue our focus on the text, “The Bodhicaryavatara” by Shantideva. Participants in the Intensive will use the first six chapters of the text as a manual for the basic practices of the bodhisattva and as the model/guide to our participation in the ageless stream of beings that have consciously made the bodhisattva path their guidepost to living an enlightened life of purpose and meaning.

In this self-development Intensive, we will study and practice in a targeted manner with the text’s stanzas that we find personally meaningful and applicable and have studied over these past months. Participants will have the opportunity to select the specific stanzas upon which they wish to concentrate. Supportive activities for this Intensive will include Dharma Talks by Fred, continued study of the text and commentaries, and small group meetings with Fred by zoom.

Please note that this Intensive is open only to FCM members who either participated in the Winter/Spring 2017 Dharma Path Intensive or with Fred’s permission.

Commitments for each Intensive participant:

·         The commitment to a minimum of one hour of daily formal meditative practice and/or oher practices related to this intensive.

·         The commitment to attend all the practice periods of your sangha during the Intensive.

·         The commitment to participate in bi-weekly small group video forums with Fred during the intensive.

·         The commitment to read Dharma texts assigned for the Intensive.

There is a suggested donation of $50 associated with this Intensive (no fee for Supporting and Sustaining FCM members).
