We all have tendencies that can be triggered by even minimal drama. Dharma (duty) is that which supports and sustains us. Drama is that which purports and inflames us. A clear understanding of dharma helps us make skillful choices, instead of going down the dead-end road of tenacious tendencies. Often what we don’t say and don’t do is the expression of our practice. In this class with Darren Rhodes, we examine the four gates of speech as our primary guide: Is our speech true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? And is it the right time to say it?
This class is useful for laypeople and helping professionals.
