This series of talks and guided meditations explores the development of the practices of both Lovingkindness and Compassion, with particular emphasis on the radical possibilities of Awakening that they bring. Through these practices we come to develop deep and beautiful qualities of heart as a real resource both for ourselves and the world, and also open ourselves to the profound and liberating understandings that can emerge from this path of love.
After sharing a personal story, th talk explores working with some of the challenging states of mind and body, followed by a teaching on the essence of Prajnaparamita, emphasizing the qualities of vast space, bliss and compassion.
What is it we are taking refuge from? Where do we find refuge? What is our relationship to taking refuge in the Buddha, Dharma, Sangha? The investigation of these questions is a practice in and of itself.
