We often talk of widening the circles of compassion. This talk explores the qualities of mature compassion, what blocks us from this embodied and inclusive caring, and how each of us can awaken a heart that responds to our world’s suffering.
This event was live-streamed and includes a talk, several guided reflections, and a Q&A session.
This guided practice awakens a relaxed and friendly attention that rests in the breath and opens to whatever is arising. We deepen that presence with the intention to truly say “Yes” to experience, allowing life to be just as it is.
A guided meditation emphasizing deepening, quieting, grounding, letting ourselves be held by nature, and shifting to a deeper and wiser perspective in support of equanimity, a balanced heart-mind. It includes a poem by Mary Oliver, "Swimming, One Day in August."
