Wisdom in Everyday Life


with Billy Boyar & Christine Wetzl
November 11 / 7:00 PM - December 9 / 9:00 PM

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.


Wisdom in Everyday Life looks at the qualities of a master warrior whose vastness of mind and skills in enriching the world are fully manifested.  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 master warrior is no longer deterred or depressed by obstacles, but with tremendous forward vision and strength, playfully includes everything as part of the path. In this way, the warrior is able to skillfully benefit the world.
