We are rational beings who are deeply satisfied when the Dharma accords with our reason. We are emotional beings who are moved by beauty and inspired by virtue and lofty ideals. We are also imaginative beings who delight in myth and magic and stories that evoke heroic qualities. In this workshop we will explore the role and importance of myth, ritual, and devotion. Drawing upon the observations of spiritual teachers and through guided meditation, we will delve into our own personal myths. We will have a taste of what it might be like to live in the realm of the Bodhisattva, living the journey to wisdom and compassion for the sake of all sentient beings. The workshop will conclude with a puja of our own making. Led by Viriyagita.
At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryalokaâ€™s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.
