The Heart Practices: Compassion
Compassion can be seen as your capacity to feel what another feels.  Whenever you can successfully do that, you create a profound shift in your consciousness.  You move from a tightly held sense of “I” and “mine” to a broader, more inclusive view.

The Heart Practices: Joy
Sympathetic joy is all about your capacity to experience joy for yourself as well as joy for others.  Like all of these practices, they are challenging and cathartic.

The Heart Practices: Equanimity and Steadiness
