Compassion and wisdom are the topics for this Saturday’s course taught by visiting Canadian Buddhist teacher Gen Sanden at the Village Green Hotel.

“Gen Sanden will clarify the meaning of wisdom and compassion and how we can use wisdom to surf the waves of life, incorporating all our experiences into a deepening awareness of life and its meaning, while simultaneously increasing our compassion for all living beings,” said Karen Goodwin, with the Dorjechang Buddhist Centre in Vernon, which is hosting the event. “In this workshop, we will have opportunities to practise meditations that we will be able to use the rest of our lives.”

The one-day course takes place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the  Village Green Hotel (Selkirk Room), 4801-27th St., Vernon.
