This year Tim and Pema will explore and practice of the six paramitas—or sublime practices—of generosity, ethical conduct, patience, joyful effort, meditation, and wisdom as a way to see into the nature of reality and cultivate the compassionate intention to help all beings awaken.

Saturday,  9am - 5pm
Sunday,  9am - 1pm

Cost - $75.  This will allow us to make a modest donation to Pema.  Everyone is welcome. Feel free to offer what you can.
