The 10 Perfections or Attainments of the Heart, the pāramīs, are a map for recovery and the creation of a culture of belonging and wisdom. In this framework for bringing the Dharma into everyday life, we cultivate generosity, virtue, renunciation, wisdom, energy, patience, truthfulness, resolve, lovingkindness, and equanimity. While they all have their challenges, for many of us, patience and resolve might be the most elusive of the bunch!

Bringing patience in to support strong emotions like anger, rage, fear, and desperation can feel like a sacred pause—a deep listening as our body restores its dignity, giving us the opportunity in between thought and action to decide how we want to respond. When we center the heart in practicing resolve, this subtle quality adds value and devotion to our intentions, and softens the edges around our determination and commitment.

In this weekend retreat, we’ll be exploring these two pāramīs as heart practices. This retreat is an optional preliminary for Belonging & Liberation: The Embodied Path of the Pāramīs, Feb – Dec 2023.

All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
