A DAY OF HEART PRACTICES WORKSHOP
The cultivation of Heart Practices (Kindness, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy, Equanimity) is one of the potent methods the Buddha taught to break down our sense of separateness from ourselves, each other and the world. These techniques were designed also to help us deal with fear and to begin to change our environment and our relationship to it.
This workshop will include a variety of heart practices. The morning session focuses on heart practices directed toward oneself—including self-kindness, self-compassion, and gratitude. The afternoon session focuses on heart practices directed toward others--including working with kindness toward people who are challenging, compassion for those who are suffering, and equanimity in the midst of a constantly changing world.
The workshop includes teacher talks, guided meditations, group discussions and personal meditation time.
