The Rime Center’s Rainbow Body Meditation Group is proud to sponsor a six week discussion on Trans Buddhist Voices. The class will be discussing the book Transcending, which brings together more than thirty contributors from both the Mahayana and Theravada traditions to present a vision for a truly inclusive trans Buddhist sangha in the twenty-first century.

If we can practice bodhicitta, develop patience, and pacify all disharmony in our own home, then we have prepared the way leading to the development of limitless bodhicitta.

Begin the New Year with the 108 Day Bodhisattva Challenge. This challenge will be practice intensive for practitioners who want to apply their understanding of Bodhicitta with daily practice. We welcome new students who are looking to learn about the Bodhisattva Mind Training and how to apply it to their Buddhist path, as well as experienced students who have insights to share. Kick-off is Jan 1st at 7:45pm. Read more…

As is our yearly tradition, we are inviting you to participate in our program of Holiday Cards for Buddhist Inmates. Packets will be available for the first 12 people who would like to participate this year. All you have to do is purchase postage stamps $11, write a message and drop the cards in the mail. It’s so simple and yet it makes such a difference in the lives of our Buddhist inmates. If you are interested in participating please fill out the following form to let up know if you will be picking up your packet. If you live in the Kansas City metro we can also arrange to have the packet dropped off to your home.
