Four Paths to Awaken a Kind Heart (Sunday)

2:00 pm Sunday, July 8, 2018

May all sentient beings have happiness and the causes of happiness
May all sentient beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering
May all sentient beings be inseparable from the happiness that is free from suffering
May all sentinet beings abide in equanimity, free from attachment for friends and hatred for enemies

  

The Four Immeasurables are powerful and inviting meditation techniques to activate the heart of kindness, counter the distortions in our relationships to ourselves, and deepen our relationships to others.

In this weekend course with Don Handrick, we will explore these four attitudes – the cultivation of equanimity, loving-kindness, compassion, and empathetic joy –and learn how to skillfully advance them to a limitless degree, eventually making our hearts as wide as the world.

The workshop will meet Friday from 7pm-9pm, Saturday from 10am to 4pm, and Sunday from 1030am to 4pm.  On Saturday and Sunday, we invite students to bring lunch and eat together while discussing the morning's teachings.

We encourage students to bring a bag lunch and stay during the break to discuss the morning's teachings together.
