The Paramis: Ten Supreme Supports For Meditation 2019-2020 RSS

This is a page to collect the recordings and materials for the Paramis study course offered 2019-2020 by Chris Clifford, David Cohen and Jennifer Lemas. We co-teach in all the sessions, so the single name on each talk below is not accurate.

The section for each Parami will contain links to the materials we emailed out for each session, plus the recording of the group Friday morning monthly meetings. Note we are mailing out readings ahead of each class, so the recording will not be available until the class happens.
