Discussion and Practice Group
Using Ani Pema Chödrön's book, Living Beautifully, we will explore the layers of personal commitment we make to ourselves to face our experience with the view of sacred creativity that incorporates simplicity, courage, and paradox to engage life in hyperdimensional space unfamiliar to the constructs and limitations of dualistic thinking. The practice of the three vows encourages us to curate a way of living well, for the sake of ourselves and all with whom we are connected, leading to unimpeded manifestation of our true nature in buddhahood.
Slow Dharma is an approach that sinks deeper rather than rushing forward without a strong foundation. Reading, experiential, and meditation assignments offered to deepen your practice between sessions.
Private spiritual counsel sessions available separately at discretion of each participant.
In our experience, a living contemplative practice such as this, harnessing the creative tension amidst immanence and transcendence, helps align us with our deepest intentions for ourselves and others.
This is grace, quickened from deep within, motivating us spontaneously to enact our aspirations beyond platitudes, on the cushion and out of the stuff of our daily lives.

DANA PRACTICE AND CULTIVATING MERIT
Dana is an offering of generosity by the community to the teachers and ordained sangha who keep the Dharma alive and accessible for us all. Much more than a transactional exchange, the practice of dana advances the spiritual flourishing of the benefactor as it supports the dharma activities of the beneficiary.
Irrespective of amount, the intention motivating the offering forges meaningful connections knitting the community as a whole together with the positivity and inexhaustible force of merit.
Everyone is encouraged to offer dana at the level that suits their indivdiual circumstances. Comparable value and benefactor amounts are provided at the request of Prajna Fire supporters who prefer a guideline for their dana offerings.
We offer full scholarships to anyone who wants one, as our dana offering to the community. Just contact us for information on how to register, and join us in gratitude to the Benefactors of Prajna Fire, who make scholarships possible.
Thank you for understanding that dana offerings are not refundable.
