WAKING UP: SPIRITUALITY NOW--EXCHANGING SELF WITH OTHERS (COMPASSION IN ACTION)
WITH NICOLE NICHOLS
SATURDAY, MARCH 26 1:30-3:30PM
The second installment in our bi-monthly series on Spirituality dives deeper into the practice of compassion. At the heart of Buddha's 84,000 teachings is bodhicitta: the awakening mind that holds the wish for enlightenment in order to free all sentient beings from suffering and lead them to happiness and freedom. We'll discuss the 5-part method of exchanging self with other, including tong-len meditation, and a healing slow flow asana practice designed to open the heart. $35
