A 4-DAY, FREE ONLINE EVENT

Practice is like a stool with three legs: kindness, mindfulness, and cultivation. Put simply, if we’re not paying attention with a warm heart while developing ourselves, something is missing. A stool with just one or two legs is wobbly, unreliable, and can’t really support you.
