Meditation practices of lovingkindness and compassion can help steady our hearts when times are tough. On this day of practice, we will learn how suffering and joy, love and hate, loneliness and connection can peacefully coexist in the same heart.
The poet Rilke explains “someone who is ready for everything, who doesn’t exclude any experience, even the most incomprehensible, will sound the depths of their own being.”
Anyone who sounds the depths of their own being discovers a benevolent heart of compassion, a flower of loving awareness blooming right in the center of this suffering world.
When navigating the most difficult impasses in life, we can come together and breathe tenderness into the moment.
