A Blessed Life E-Course

All the technology in the world cannot tell us how to fill our lives with blessings, and guide us to healing our emotional and spiritual wounds. 

This July Donald teaches an E-Course at Spirituality & Practice that focuses on living a Blessed Life through the lens of the ten enlightened principles, values, or virtues--known in Buddhism as the paramitas. 

These are not hypothetical ideas, but practical guides for the daily expression of  kindness, compassion, and deep respect for all beings regardless of differences in faith, belief, culture, gender, social status and ethnicity.

Putting these into action will give you real-life tractiom and help overcome dis-traction.

Now you might be thinking, "how can I do this in July, with July 4th and all the other summer plans I have?" 

There is probably no better time to incorporate this into your life than when you're fully engaged in living. Join us as we explore the timeless principles of generosity, effort, patience, ethics, simplicity and meditation, wisdom, truthfulness, steadfastness, equanimity, and loving-kindness. 

HOW: It's easy. Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday you'll receive a detailed e-mail with practices, quotes, and inspirations.

There's a Practice Circle open 24/7 for sharing and getting feedback from an international community of participants, along with guidance from Donald.

REGISTER TODAY and make this summer a meaningful and memorable one.
