The Four Beautiful Qualities of Heart: An Evening Dharma Talk

Narayan Helen Liebenson SIMS at University Friends Meeting House

Narayan Helen Liebenson

4/17/2020 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM  at  SIMS at University Friends Meeting House (4001 9th Ave NE, Seattle, WA, 98105) (Map It)

Both the Friday night talk and this weekend retreat will address the principles and practices of what are known as the Brahmaviharas, or Divine Abodes. These are four beautiful qualities of heart - metta, compassion, joy, and equanimity - which can blossom in our relationships to ourselves and others through inclining the mind on these qualities in a sustained way. In applying ourselves to this material, what begins as a fragile seed becomes a stable tree that gives cover when needed. Through understanding the principles of these practices and practicing with confidence and steadiness, these beautiful qualities within our hearts become our dwelling places where we feel most at home.
