Room: Main Shrine Room

Kindness is an expression of love, a way of being present with oneself and others that is open, authentic and strong.  It creates the atmosphere for genuine communication and harmony and has the power to transform.

Meditation practice is a gesture of kindness. In meditation we strengthen our ability to be present with our self unconditionally, interested in what is happening here and now, rather than wishing to be someone or somewhere else. It is a way to tune into and care for our wholeness which naturally spills over into our relationships with others.

This workshop will introduce basic mindfulness awareness meditation practice and a loving kindness contemplation practice as ways to cultivate kindness to oneself, others and our world.

Learn to Be Kind to Oneself is part of the Learn to Live Mindfully series: workshops that offer practical teachings and meditation techniques to help us grow into more mindful and compassionate human beings. These workshops include guided meditation, teaching and group conversation.

 

Open to everyone! Registration opens at 9am.
