Meditation & The Art of Compassionate Living
Wednesdays 7pm – 9pm
Starting Wed Jan 24th
Although kindness and compassion are basic human qualities, it is not always easy to embody them in our lives, especially in today’s hectic, fast-paced world. The good news is that we can cultivate compassion, bringing major benefits for our health and well-being, and our relationships with family, friends and colleagues.
This exploration of empathy and compassion will include instruction in meditation and compassion practices from the Buddhist tradition but will be conducted in a spirit of open enquiry and so will be relevant for those of any spiritual tradition or none.
Open to complete beginners as well as those who have some knowledge of meditation.
We recommend you follow the complete course, but if that is not possible for you then you are welcome to join when you can.
