This program will share the meditation practices that expand our capacity to meet life with an open, stable heart-mind. Guided meditations will vary week to week, providing an opportunity to try new practices and ways of working with life’s challenges. The four heart qualities known as the Brahma Viharas (Noble Abodes) will be cultivated with variations on ways to evoke and develop them: Kindness, Compassion, Joy and Equanimity.
10:15 – Doors Open
10:30 – 10:55 – Guided Meditation
Collective Sharing of Delights or Difficulties
Short Reading: Guidance in the Buddhist Practices of the Heart
Discussion until 11:30
Following the guided meditation, we’ll give each other the opportunity to connect, to be supported in times of difficulty, and be witnessed in times of joy. The collective “Sharing of Delights or Difficulties” is formal practice of briefly naming a sorrow or difficulty, a joy or delight, and having the group witness and resonate with each other’s experience.
No prior meditation experience is needed to attend this program. Please make every effort to arrive by 10:30. Tea is available for those who’d like to arrive early.
