Lama Zopa Rinpoche has said "Each one of us is responsible for all other living beings' happiness, besides our own. As a result, your loving kindness is the most wish-fulfilling thing in life, more precious than anything else in this world. That makes for a most satisfying, fulfilling life." These opportunities for guided group meditation will aim to familiarize practitioners with the four immeasurable thoughts: love, compassion, joy and equanimity, as well as tonglen, the practice of mentally taking on the suffering of others and giving happiness in return. We will come to understand how to employ these meditation techniques in daily life to respond to challenges with a more open heart, and learn how love and compassion provide us with the courage to transform problems into the path of awakening.
Each class will provide simple meditation instructions and two guided meditation sessions. Each class stands alone, please feel free to drop in as your schedule permits.
