“A bodhisattva is someone whose process of awakening comes about through the process of serving others yet knows that this world is dynamic and unresolvable. Resting in this paradox is bodhicitta or awakened mind. “ ~ Elizabeth Mattis-Namgyel
Explore how to be strong and gentle, wise but humble, focused on your full potential to be enlightened while still remaining present and enjoying today.
This talk will discuss what it means to have awakened bodhicitta within oneself as well as how to nurture the beginnings of such a vast view.
