Weekly Meditation & Dharma: Perseverance

Anna Ossenfort
with Anna Ossenfort

3/20/2018 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM at Seattle Insight Meditation Center, (2729 6th Ave. S., Seattle, 98134) (Map It)

When asked to name qualities that distinguish the long-term practitioner, a wise person once replied, in part, "Perseverance." With tonight's talk we will investigate and discuss several elements of this powerful principle: 1) why it's so vital to our practice; 2) how our thoughts and actions either discourage or encourage it to arise; and 3) practical ways to bring it about on the cushion and in our daily lives.

The Tuesday evening ongoing class at SIMS starts with a meditation and is followed by a dharma talk. The evening is open to anyone who has had introductory meditation instruction from a qualified instructor. Dharma talks are often presented in series.
