By Dawn Scott, Guest Teacher
Ruth King’s re-framing of the three characteristics — the truth of suffering, the truth of impermanence, and the truth of not-self — as not perfect, not permanent, and not personal is pithy and powerful. With the support of Patience, one of the Ten Paramis, we’ll explore the ways that patience can guide the heart into transforming reactivity into a tender and gradual acceptance of life's imperfection, impermanence, and impersonal nature.
