Unlock your Potential

With Pam Cayton

July 21 - August 18, 2024

Sundays,

In-Person only at Wishfulfilling Temple

10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join us on a journey of inner discovery along the 7 Steps to knowledge, strength, and compassion.

  •  Tap into your innate wisdom
  • Expand your warm heart
  • Empower your positive impact on others

We’ll develop practical skills to bring into your daily life and strengthen your constructive influence on yourself, community, and the world at large. These classes are interactive, with periods of mindful reflection and discussion. We will explore ancient wisdom, psychology, and current science as it relates to our own mind, our life and the world around us.

This program is for everyone, no background or experience in Buddhism is required. You can drop into the classes as it suits your schedule or come to all of them.

Class One: July 21

Intro to CCC: We will learn about the origins of this approach in understanding ourselves and the larger world we live in.

Mindful Intention: We examine our own quality of mind and the deep wishes we have for ourselves, our community and beyond. By delving deeper into our life’s wishes we reflect on the ‘why’ or the origin, of these wishes.

Class Two: July 28

Interconnection: We explore the nature of all things as being produced, connected and interdependent. In this way we reflect on ‘how’ or the method to (we) bring our deepest wishes into our everyday life.

Change: In reflection on the nature of change we see it as our ally, our enemy, and our teacher.

Class Three: August 11

Creating our World: We delve into examining our mind and the nature of “I”, our identity, (concept of ‘I’ ) by applying and integrating what we have learned in the previous two classes.

Transforming Emotions: We now apply all we have learned in the previous classes to understand our emotions in more depth and realize how we can potentially transform them into the result we really want rather than constantly allowing them to run us.

Class Four: August 18

Empathy: Here we extend our understanding to others and explore the common bonds we share with humanity and all life.

Compassion: Based on our analysis through reflection, discussion, and practice, we understand logically, and deeply, our power to benefit, and thus in doing so, we gain what it is we really want through an attitude of wanting others to be happy as well.
