Emptiness brings to life the classic Heart Sutra line by line, including the philosophical meaning of "Form is emptiness; emptiness itself is form. Emptiness is no other than form; form is no other than emptiness."  This course focuses on shunyata, or emptiness -- that the apparently substantial world that we perceive and think about is, in fact, empty of any solid or objectifiable reality.  Once this emptiness is realized, the true beauty and value of the world may be seen and the boundless wisdom and compassion within each person may be fully released. 

Prerequisites: Journey Without Goal or completion of Enlightened Society Assembly and/or Warriors Assembly, or permission of the instructor.  (Contact
