Dana: The Pali Word for Generosity

Awakening Truth has adopted the practice of “Dana” (giving) as both a spiritual practice and a practical way to meet the financial needs of the learning center. Dana is a Pali word for generosity. Throughout Buddhist history, spiritual teachings have been offered to people free of charge. This practice links the community of teachers, students, and centers through the spirit of generosity.

Compassion and Emptiness

Compassion and emptiness are complimentary access points to learn to relate in a loving and discerning way to our experience.  Compassion is both a tool and perspective for our dis-ease with the realities of our existence. Our fears, distorted perceptions, and suffering all release when we recognize the transcendent wisdom of emptiness. When we let go of a solid self-nature, we let go of boundaries that keep us feeling separate and we stop believing the stories we tell ourselves about who and what we are. In this openness, the hearts natural response is love and compassion.

The Program will consist of  guided and silent meditation, awareness of movement, questions, discussion and application in daily life. It is suitable for new and experienced practitioners.

In accordance with ancient Buddhist principles where liberating and timeless truths are considered priceless, no set fee is required to participate. You are invited to contribute as generously as you can to continue to make these teachings available. Your donation is required to reserve your spot.

Bring lunch for yourself. Kindly come fragrance free out of compassion for those with chemical sensitivities.

Loving kindness has personal and boundless facets. When we cultivate it personally, we bring loving kindness directly to our body, emotions, mind states and relationships. Knowing unconditioned love is an access point to let go of a solid self-nature. When we do that we let go of boundaries that keep us feeling separate. Our fears that we will lose our personal love relationships release. We stop believing the stories we tell ourselves about who and what we are. The myths that we are undeserving and essentially unlovable fall away. In this openness, the heart natural response is to feel and let love in.
