Due to some technical difficulties with our payment processor, after you register you will be directed back to this website to make your donation for the class(es). Please use the donate button and leave a comment indicating what the donation is for. Thank you!

If you are thinking of signing up for any of the remaining classes:

You may sign up for the entire series of six classes and get access via Vimeo and password for those you missed.  Or you may sign up for individual classes or any combination of individual classes.  Those four remaining are:

Saturday May 2 -  Patience
Saturday May 9 -  Enthusiastic effort
Saturday May 16 - Meditative concentration
Saturday May 23 - Wisdom

The Six Paramitas (also known as the Six Perfections) form a path to awakening. The six include generosity, ethical discipline, patience, enthusiastic effort, concentration, and wisdom. Each paramita leads to the next and each supports the others.

Paramita means that which goes beyond or transcends. The Six Paramitas help us transcend our ordinary way of perceiving and acting, which is to place ourselves front and center. They are the way of a bodhisattva, who acts joyously and endlessly for the benefit of all beings.

This six-class sequence will take place weekly on Saturdays via Zoom, beginning April 18 at 2:00pm. Classes last roughly two hours. Read more for Zoom and registration details.


The classes will be accessible via Zoom, which will allow those registered to participate in questions and dialogue — since only registered participants may access each Zoom session, participants must register in advance.

Those who register will receive instructions for using Zoom software to participate in the classes.


Participants may register for the entire sequence at a reduced rate, or for individual classes. See suggested donation below. Following the opening class on April 18th, registration for individual classes will be available in the week preceding each class; constraints of our registration system require this arrangement.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are temporarily unable to take registration donations through the registration site.
