“With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability,
one can build a better world. ” His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Buddha LOMBOur practice is not limited to our time in meditation or on the cushion. Often our most beneficial practice is what we do when we are off the cushion. Our real practice is in every breath we take and manifests in every action we make. When we practice Dharma, we can see the situations in our lives clearly and respond to them in a way that is beneficial to ourselves and others. Rather than doing your practice, let your life be your practice.

Webcast: Every Wednesday the Way of Compassion hosts a meditation and Dharma talk facilitated by John (Chophel) Bruna.  The teaching is in Carbondale, Colorado and broadcast live via Livestream.com. It is available for free to all.  All you need is a free Livestream account. Here is a direct link to John’s Livestream profile – John Bruna Livestream.

In addition to our weekly Carbondale group, on the last Wednesday of each month groups get together in different cities to participate in the teachings as a sangha.  See below for a list of sanghas.  If you would like to form one, please contact us.

Format: Each session begins with a short meditation (24 mins) and then a Dharma talk.

Topic: Our current topic is the Lam Rim; Stages of the Path to Enlightenment.

Time: Wednesdays, 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm Mountain Time at the Third Street Center – 520 Third Street, Suite 28, Carbondale, CO

The teachings are always offered freely.  If you would like to make a secure, tax-deductible donation to support the teachings, please use the “Dana” button.
