Deepening in Compassion

The path of the Bodhisattva Warrior begins with developing affection for ourselves and expands this to others, dissolving the barriers that divide us.

To support this practice, senior teachers of the Shambhala lineage are offering  teachings during a year long series of talks, contemplative and meditation practices from the Buddhist Mahayana teachings of our lineage.


The Four Limitless Ones, is the first course of the four-part series exploring the Shambhala Mahayana teachings. This course includes Tonglen instruction and an audio talk by Ani Pema Chodron and an introduction to The Four Limitless Ones. It also includes:

  • Five live classes taught by a senior teacher in a virtual classroom
  • Live discussions with the participants at the session, supported by a facilitator
  • Readings and book suggestions to deepen our understanding of these teachings
  • Contemplations to help us integrate these fundamental teachings into our daily lives  

Topics for Talks and discussion will include

  • Shamatha and Maitri: Establishing the Foundations for our Mahayana Journey
  • Equanimity
  • Loving Kindness
  • Compassion
  • Sympathetic Joy and Course Conclusion
This class is with local community leaders supported with new video and livestream talks by/with senior teachers in our teaching lineage.
