This week’s theme is: The Power of Compassion.

 

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive. – Dalai Lama

 

During this week we will explore how compassion informs and supports meditation practice and the deepening of understanding and wisdom. We will practice and inquire into different aspects of this powerful attitude and intention and taste for ourselves the impact it has on ourselves and the world.

Awakening requires that we soften…
