DESCRIPTION

How do we cultivate energies that encourage our capacity for caring and compassion toward ourselves and others?  In this daylong retreat we will consider the brahma viharas of loving kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity and explore practices for developing these qualities in our daily lives.

This daylong retreat will include sitting and walking meditation, dhamma talks about the teachings and practice of the brahma viharas, small group sessions with Q&As, and optional opportunities for 1-on-1 discussions with one of the Local Dharma Leaders about your practice.

This daylong retreat is part of a 9 month series on some of the essential teachings of Buddhism. See here.

This daylong retreat is open to anyone with experience in mindfulness meditation equivalent to SIMS Introductory Meditation Class.
