The Buddha identified ten qualities of character that were necessary for the development of an awakened life. Today, the cultivation of these ten virtues is more important than ever. This October, join meditation teachers Sylvia Boorstein and Sharon Salzberg for a special event exploring these ten virtues with a particular focus on the uplifting qualities of patience and generosity in a virtual weekend retreat.
As in the time of the Buddha, the path to freedom in our modern world begins with a generous heart and a patient mind. Patience and generosity are known to increase feelings of peace, joy, and ease of heart in daily life, and these qualities support the skillful navigation of everyday circumstances that can create suffering and confusion in difficult times. Patience and generosity offer another way of being, with a strength and clarity that leads to deep and lasting wisdom. Together, Sylvia, Sharon, and the community of attendees will explore the qualities of patience and generosity through dialogue, sitting and walking meditation, and question and answer sessions. This special event is open to people of all backgrounds, beliefs, and experience levels and will be recorded for those who cannot attend the live program. Replay available for 90 days.
