Class 1 of 11 — Taught by Beverle Deerfoot, one of the senior teachers of Diamond Heart. She is presenting an 11 week study of Course 14 from the Asian Classics Institute: Lojong, Developing the Good Heart
This course presents classical Buddhist advices on how to be a good person all day, every day. In ancient times, these advices were whispered in private from high lamas to their students and were only written down beginning in the 11th century. Over time time these teachings were made public.
Topics that will be included in this course are: • how to practice a good heart during everyday life
• six keys to success
• five powers
• the real meaning of freedom from attachment
• how to handle difficult situations
• and how to send your mind into death (powa).
Course is eleven consecutive Thursdays, beginning February 20, 2014, 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. (class starts promptly at 6:15pm). Each class builds on the next so attendance is encouraged, though not required.
All classes meet at 1055 W. Moana, # 202, Reno. All welcome – no previous experience with Buddhism needed. Just an interest, curiosity and interest in becoming a kinder person.
Class is offered by donation. Please call Beverle at[masked] for more info, to register and/or to order class materials – or just to chat. (Beverle would love to hear from you!)
