Wisdom in Everyday Life


with Jane Hope
November 6 / 7:30 PM - December 4 / 9:00 PM

In this series of 5 classes, we will look into how meditation uncovers our wisdom. This wisdom is always present, and can be applied to transform confused situations and emotions into effective actions. No longer deterred or depressed by obstacles, we can include everything as part of the path. The challenges of daily life become opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action

 

These classes also look at the qualities of an accomplished warrior whose vastness of mind and skills in enriching the world are fully manifest. Here the practitioner is introduced to the vajrayana teachings of Buddhism, which reveal the sacredness of the phenomenal world. Students will receive essential instructions for transforming confused emotions and situations into wisdom as they arise. The accomplished warrior is no longer deterred or depressed by obstacles, but with tremendous forward vision and strength and fully manifesting the aspect of our true nature called “Dragon” we can playfully include everything that arises as path. In this way the warrior is able to skilfully benefit the world. This course will be taught by Jane Hope.

 

Jane Hope is a long-term student of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, and a founding member of the London Shambhala Meditation Centre. She has been appointed by the Sakyong as a 'shastri', or senior teacher, for the UK and the Ukraine.
