We continue our “Time In” program with the following offerings: Loving Kindness, Loving Kindness-Extended and Tonglen. These practices help us soften and open the heart. In these groups we integrate mindfulness practice, meditation and action exploration. You don’t have to be a meditation practitioner to attend. We welcome all levels of experience. The only expertise we require is an open mind and a desire to experience. Join us!
Upcoming Dates & Subject Matters:
|Mar 11th, 2018||Loving Kindness
We often do not take time to check in with the condition of our heart. In this afternoon we will turn our attention to our heart. We will teach and practice together Loving Kindness.
|Apr 8th, 2018||Loving Kindness: Extended
We expand Loving Kindness to others, including those with whom we struggle. This practice supports us in letting go of resentment, which is a source of suffering and blocks our ability to experience joy.
|May 20th, 2018||Tonglen
This is a practice of "sending and taking" which involves a combination of breathing and visualization. It is a practice of opening our heart to our own pain and to the pain of others. This meditation guides us in invoking loving presence in the face of difficulty.
