The Essentials of Practice: Spiritual Friends
Teacher: Pat Coffey
The Buddha spoke often about the essential role of spiritual friendship in the process of awakening.
It is not a stretch to say that the frenetic cultural norms that we find ourselves living in do not support a contemplative practice. In fact, much of our culture drives and supports the opposite. We are swimming against the stream.
Tonight, Pat will talk about what a spiritual friend is.... and is not. He will explore how those qualities of spiritual friendship can be cultivated in us, not only for our benefit but for the benefit of all.
There will be full meditation instructions offered, making this session suitable for beginners as well as seasoned practitioners.
