In this short 8-week series, we will explore basic, yet profound teachings called the Three Principal Paths: Refuge (our mind), Bodhichitta (compassion) and World View (wisdom). We will connect these three concepts to the Four Nobles Truths as a way to understand the nature of human suffering.

“The practice of mindfulness leads to both psychological healing and profound spiritual insight.” Culadasa

Meditation is a like preparing the soil (our mind) and planting seeds (wisdom and compassion). When the seeds sprout and flower (insights) over time our mind becomes a garden full of wisdom and compassion. Meditation helps us access the mind in ways that is unlike anything else we experience in our everyday life.

Pema Chodron writes that the intention of meditation is to remove the root of suffering, not just the symptoms of suffering and that the root of suffering is our mind, in the same way that the root of happiness is also our mind.

“Repeating simple tasks with a clear intention can reprogram unconscious mental processes. This can completely transform who you are.” Culadasa

You can expect a short talk, meditation, and discussion in each class.
