New Class at First Unitarian Universalist Church

The Six Perfections: The Bodhisattva Path of Awakening
Class at First Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashville
Wednesday nights, September 29 - November 3
Fireside Room (in the main building)

According to Mahayana Buddhism, awakened mind naturally manifests in our experience as the Six Perfections: generosity, ethics, patience, effort, meditation and wisdom. Practicing the perfections as path puts us in touch with our own humanity, which gives us compassion for others, allowing wisdom to arise naturally.

Join Rita Frizzell as we explore one of the perfections each week:
Sept. 29 -- Introduction & Generosity
Oct. 6 -- Ethics
Oct. 13 -- Patience
Oct. 20 -- Joyful effort
Oct. 27 -- Meditation
Nov. 3 -- Wisdom

If you want to come for dinner, join us at 6:00 in the social area near the sanctuary. $7 for dinner, no cost for class. Childcare provided.

Location: 1808 Woodmont Blvd near the intersection of Woodmont and Hillsboro in the Green Hills area of Nashville. The entrance is on the rear side of the church, near the top of the hill (on the northwest side). To get to the Fireside Room, enter the door on the left and continue down the hall and to the right. For questions, call Rita at 615-463-2374
