The Heart of Compassion
A 6-week course of Buddhist teachings and meditation practices on Compassion
When: Wednesday 7:00 – 8:15pm, 15th October to 19th November 2014
Where: 181a Nelson Place, Williamstown (above the Tick Tok café).
His Holiness the Dalai Lama describes compassion as a combination of empathy and reason. In this short course we shall explore what this means through engaging with Buddhist teachings and meditation practices on compassion and loving kindness.
Buddhist compassion arises out of a sense of kinship with others, acknowledging that all living beings have the same wish: to be happy and to avoid suffering. First we learn to be with our own thoughts and emotions in a kind and non-judgmental way. This leads us to develop our capacity for extending that same kindness and understanding to others. In this way we can actively contribute to peace in our world.
This course is suited to those with some meditation experience.
