2018 IMCW New Year Retreat: Awakening the Heart of Compassion

The New Year is a wonderful time to touch sacred presence and deepen our roots in spiritual life. In this silent retreat we will open our hearts and minds through practices of Vipassana (mindfulness meditation–both sitting and walking sessions), traditional heart meditations (metta), yoga (mindful movement) and evening chanting.

2018-12-30 From Judgment to Self-Compassion 55:58
  Tara Brach
When we’ve turned on ourselves with blame and aversion, it’s very difficult to arouse self-compassion. This talk looks at the role of nurturing in freeing our hearts, and offers practice in three key steps that enable us to embrace ourselves with a healing presence.
2018-12-31 Meditation: Being the Ocean and Opening to the Waves 26:54
  Tara Brach
We can’t truly open to the waves of life unless we recognize our Oceanness, the formless awareness that is our source. This meditation begins with awakening the senses and then invites us to discover the spacious presence in the background of all experience.
