About The Event
Bodhicitta implies an 'awakened' heart-mind.
This workshop will show us how to cultivate Bodhicitta through our thoughts and actions, and the way we live our lives from this point forward. The approach is experiential, with direct application to use these practices in daily life through training our mind and opening our heart.
