Critical Intelligence as the Ground for Opening the Heart with Acharya Judy Lief


Friday, Nov. 9, 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Sat. & Sun., Nov. 10 & 11, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm


What does it mean to be a genuine practitioner? What are some of the pitfalls both personally and institutionally to developing transformative dharma communities in the modern world?

In this seminar, we will be engaging in mindfulness and awareness practices, as well as contemplations designed to cultivate maitri and loving kindness. Within that practice container, we will explore together some of the tough issues facing practitioners and sanghas in current times.

We will look into topics such as patriarchy, blind faith, devotion and loyalty, the role of the teacher, and the responsibilities of dharma students. On a personal practice level, we will look into the arising of kleshas, confusion, and doubt and what insights can arise within such conceptual-emotional chaos.
