Tuesdays: May 9 – May 30 from 7pm to 8:30pm
at Jewel Heart Center
The world is a challenging place, but at some point in our lives, we have all experienced the warm feeling of love, the stable mind of impartiality, the caring thought of compassion, and the contentment of rejoicing in others’ happiness. By developing these qualities continuously, we will find increasing peace, happiness, and courage while helping others do the same.
Traditionally known as the four immeasurables, loving kindness, compassion, equanimity, and joy are immeasurable because they can develop limitlessly as we expand the number of beings we include in our scope of sharing. Through a series of integrated meditations and discussions, we’ll train together in developing these qualities one by one so that we can make their cultivation part of our daily habits. By doing so, we will grow through improving the world for ourselves and others. We’ll be making the world a better place!
This series incorporates advice and exercises to build one’s own meditation practice based on our daily life experiences. It is most beneficial to attend the entire series, although it is also possible to attend individual sessions. It is geared toward all levels of practitioners and complete beginners are welcome.
