Green Gulch Farm: Workshop

  • Wheelwright Center at Green Gulch Farm (map)

The title of this workshop comes from Norman’s new book, The World Could Be Otherwise: Imagination and the Bodhisattva Path, which argues for an imaginative approach to spiritual practice for our difficult times. The book and workshop are built around the idea of the bodhisattva path, consisting of six traditional practices, giving, ethical conduct, patient forbearance, joyful effort, meditation, and imaginative wisdom.

We’ll spend the afternoon practicing silent meditation and talking about these six great practices, and how to make them our own.
