As we discover the 3 characteristics of life in our meditation practice, we begin to recognize their truth in all aspects of life beyond our mediation practice. Through this clear understanding, compassion for self and others emerges organically. The cultivation of compassion practice directed towards our own or others suffering can also strengthen this quality in our minds and hearts. This talk includes some guided practice.
