Do you find the daily pressures of life getting in the way of your sense of balance, ease, and compassion? In this introductory workshop, we will begin by exploring mindfulness to learn directly how it can cultivate both greater well-being AND a more open, compassionate heart. We will then dive into compassion to get a better understanding of what it is, how it can be cultivated, and why it’s beneficial. The afternoon will include guided meditations, brief talks, and discussions – including experiential and conceptual learning. Mindfulness and compassion are natural abilities that can be developed and nurtured by anyone. Why not join us and discover ways to water these healthy seeds in yourself?
