Doing the Hard Work of Waking Up

with Dave Smith

Special Guest at Bozeman Insight Community

Thursday, October 6
7-8:30 PM

The goal of Dharma practice is to wake up. To awaken from the spiritual slumber of greed, hatred, and confusion. Right effort is a key path factor on how we apply our minds to accomplish this very task and the much-required work of doing so. During this evening practice session, Dave will outline the teachings of the four great efforts and provide strategies and examples of how we can put our efforts to the test.
