CLASSES IN JULY

Holding a Good Heart

In this four week course we will learn how to develop and maintain a good heart towards others, those we are close to, those we dont know well and also those with whom our views often conflict.  We will explore the different aspects of modern Buddhism and the tools found in meditation to begin to recognize and concentrate on a good heart both in formal meditation and in our daily life.

“Cherishing others is not so difficult – all we need to do is understand why we should cherish others and then make a firm decision to do so.  Through meditating on this decision we will develop a deep and powerful feeling of cherishing for all beings.  we then carry this special feeling into our daily life.”
