Anchored in Compassion
Just as an anchor gives a place of stability and protection for a ship amidst the crashing waves of the ocean, so does compassion provide this function amidst the crashing waves of life. It is easy to be toppled and “shipwrecked” when life becomes turbulent. Training in and meditating on compassion allows one to respond courageously to the suffering of the world from a spiritual and wise place. It even allows one to transform and transcend these places of challenge and pain into areas of growth and development.
This meditation course will provide essential teachings on what meditative compassion is, how to develop it using various meditation methods, and how to use it to transform adversity in our life. Participants are invited to join in a special, “anchored in compassion” retreat on MARCH 21 which will help deepen their experience of compassion.
As each class is self-contained, feel free to drop-in to any class in the series. No need to bring anything or wear special clothing. Everyone welcome!
