Deepening Compassion: The Path of the Bodhisattva Warrior is a series of four courses offered through Shambhala Online.
Maitri & the Four Immeasurables is the first course of the four-part series exploring the Shambhala Mahayana teachings. This course includes an in-depth exploration of The Four Limitless Ones, as well as an audio talk by Ani Pema Chödrön giving tonglen instruction. There are six talks in Course 1:

  • Shamatha and Maitri: Establishing the Foundations for our Mahayana Journey with Acharya Susan Chapman
  • The Practice of Tonglen with Ani Pema Chödrön
  • Equanimity with Eve Rosenthal
  • Loving Kindness with Acharya Fleet Maull
  • Compassion with Acharya Dale Asrael
  • Sympathetic Joy with Acharya Dan Hessey

We will watch each talk (pre-recorded), discuss, practice and study together as a community via Zoom. This first course will be facilitated by Denise Wuensch and Dhi Good, senior teachers at the Denver Center.

There are no prerequisites. Everyone is welcome!
