Intention and Impact: Wise Action in our World
With Larry Yang and Brian Hill
Continuing our exploration for Men of Color, we invite our practices of spiritual awareness into how we act and behave in the world. The opportunity of the Buddha’s Teachings is as we move to create less suffering and more freedom in our external world, that we make sure that we remember to create less suffering and more freedom in our internal world. Our collective practice is to bring these efforts together into a progressively expansive awareness of how to move in the world with wisdom and kindness.
Meditators of any experience are welcome, with a special invitation to beginners.
