This Summer, the Seattle Shambhala Center is pleased to begin the series of four courses that make up the year long program, Deepening Compassion: The Path of the Bodhisattva Warrior, currently being offered by Shambhala Online - view here. The path of the Bodhisattva Warrior begins with developing affection for ourselves and expands this to others, dissolving the barriers that divide us. 

Each of the four courses include pre-recorded talks taught by Shambhala’s very senior teachers and a facilitated discussion led by a local Seattle teacher. 

Participants receive the Shambhala Online recorded talks for independent viewing each week, prior to the local group class, as well as optional reading assignments and contemplation suggestions.

This course is open to all with no prerequisites.

Course One: Deepening Compassion: Maitri & the Four Immeasurables is the first course of the four-part series exploring the Shambhala Mahayana teachings. This course includes an in-depth exploration of The Four Immeasurables (or Four Limitless Ones), as well as an audio talk by Ani Pema Chödron giving tonglen instruction. The Seattle facilitator for this first course will be Alan Ness.
