The Bodhisattva Path
A life of meaning and purpose
If this vision of a meaningful life makes sense to us, we, too, can enter this path. This path is not reserved for religious monastics; it is open to all of us. Even as laypeople with many responsibilities, we can be actively involved in life and still follow this path.
As bodhisattvas-in-training, we engage in the process of gradually transforming our mind. Freed of the afflictive emotions that arise from our misunderstandings and distorted perceptions, the natural goodness and purity of our mind begins to emerge. This is the mind of our innate wisdom and compassion—generous and joyful and fully equipped with the necessary skills to benefit others.
The Bodhisattva Path meets once a week for four weeks. Each meeting lasts 90 minutes and includes instruction, meditation practice, and time for Q & A. Currently classes are hybrid, i.e. they are simultaneously taught in-person and on Zoom. After the class ends, a weekly follow-up meeting will be offered at no cost to answer your questions.
John Blackburn, Ph.D., has practiced meditation for over fifty years, practicing intensively with teachers in the Vipassana, Zen, and Dzogchen traditions. For many years he served as chair of the Board of Directors for Southern Dharma Retreat Center in Spring Creek, NC.
