What does the Middle Way mean? It means finding the balance between living in this reality with little or no tools to alleviate our stress, disappointments, and suffering and trying to live in an idealistic, unrealistic bubble. Living in the middle way helps us reshape our minds and our worlds, while opening our hearts in a compassionate way to others.
Inner Jewel Dharma is a not-for-profit community that offers a modern interpretation of time-tested Dharma through study, meditation, service, and retreat in order to learn to live with greater compassion and wisdom.
So, what does that mean to you? You can learn, ask questions, and root out those things in your life that lead to more stress and unhappiness. As you get happier, your capacity to help others increases. Then, everyone wins.
Everyone is welcome. We are inclusive, NOT exclusive.
Thanks for being part of our community.
