Central to the Buddha’s path of awakening is an opening to the intersection of intimacy with suffering and a deepening experience of freedom – an ’emptiness’ of tightness and stressful reactivity. In this four week Buddhist Studies Course we will review how the practices of love and compassion support and inform the deepening of wisdom, leading to greater freedom and ease as we engage this world with all its poignant joys and very real suffering.
