Limitless Expressions of the Heart with Tempel Smith

May 30; June 6, 13, 20
7:00 – 8:45 pm

 with Tempel Smith


The Buddha taught four limitless expressions of a free heart called the Brahma Viharas: loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy, and equanimity. These warm, clear, and expansive qualities of heart are both tastes of the path to freedom and the outcome of awakening. Within these four Brahma Viharas are many other beautiful tones of heart such as gratitude, forgiveness, loyalty, generosity, etc.  We will practice and develop one Brahma Vihara per week.

May 30:  Loving-Kindness – Metta
June 6:  Compassion – Karuna
June 13:  Empathetic Joy – Mudita
June 20:  Equanimity – Upekkha

Drop in, open to all. No prior experience or registration required. Come to any or all, as you are able. Offered for a suggested, sliding scale contribution.


Tempel Smith began practicing meditation in 1989 at Insight Meditation Society (IMS). He has taught meditation and Buddhist psychology since 2001 and is a senior teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center, leading retreats and directing their dedicated practitioner program.

Registration Information

Weekend retreats, classes and workshops at the Dharma Center have a 2-part “cost:”  Because the teachings are considered priceless and are to be supported by Dana (a voluntary, anonymous offering of no specified amount) we ask that you consider making a Dana offering to the teacher, in gratitude and support of the teachings – as best fits your circumstances and brings you joy in giving.

Secondly, we ask a sliding-scale registration fee to cover Tempel’s expenses and the cost of putting on the workshop.  Scholarships are always available and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.

This online registration is offered for those who prefer to pre-pay by card and is priced for the entire series of four.

Please enter the number of people you are registering in the box to the right of the rate you are opting to pay.
