Sundays, 10am-11am EST, Nov 8th–Dec 27th

One of the beautiful mysteries of kindness, is that through our vulnerability we become stronger. Fear, hatred and craving contract the heart and leave us feeling heavy, in pain and exhausted. Kindness frees us, and brings the energy and courage to face life’s difficulties. Kindness opens the door to friendship and community. Through kindness we learn that we are not alone in this, that we can embody the best qualities of our humanity, and that we can support those qualities in others.

In our next Sunday series of meditations and short talks, we will explore two core Buddhist teachings for the liberation of the heart and the building of transformative community: The Brahma Viharas or ‘Divine Abodes’ and the Samgrahavastus or ‘Means of Unification’ Join us on Zoom for the whole series, or drop in as you like. All are welcome! Suggested donation of $5-$15 per gathering. Click here to donate and let us know you’re coming.
