As I’m teaching every week for the next month, I’ve decided to launch into an exploration of the heart practices.
It’s one thing to develop your capacity for concentration – your capacity to notice what is happening as it’s happening.
It’s another to develop your capacity for mindfulness – for non-judging awareness.
And it’s yet another skill to call on the qualities of kindness and compassion. When the heart opens, there can be a natural softening, an expansion from a tight sense of “I and Mine” to a more natural, embracing state. This talk dives into some of the original teachings and practices.
Here’s the blurb:
This talk explores ‘metta,’ the essential teaching of cultivating generosity toward yourself and others.
In this training you can move from a small sense of a self-protective “I” to a more expanse sense of inter-connectedness. It’s not necessarily easy, but a powerful training to remember your true nature.
