This five-week course will focus on the practices of Mindfulness, Lovingkindness, and Compassion. All of these practices strengthen self-confidence, self-acceptance, and steadiness of mind and heart, revealing our fundamental kindness. Practices of lovingkindness and compassion allow us to keep our hearts open in moments of struggle and suffering, while mindfulness allows us to see clearly our experience, discern options, and make wise choices.
You will learn the formal meditation practices that develop these qualities and their practical applications in your relationships with yourself, others, and the rest of your life.
Each class will include guided meditations, experiential exercises, instructive talks, and a group discussion. Every week you will receive homework suggestions to help you incorporate and skillfully apply the teachings and practices covered in the class into your daily life. Once the class starts you will receive access to the dedicated learning platform containing home practice materials including downloadable guided meditations and written handouts.
