Lovingkindness: May All Beings Be Happy, Including Me (class), CC 6/25 – 7/16
with Kanshin Allison Tait
Four Mondays, June 25 – July 16, 7:30 – 9 pm
In the Art Lounge
The Buddha taught that kindness and compassion are not special qualities of a few extraordinary saints, but skills that can be learned and developed. In this course, we will explore methods to cultivate greater kindness and acceptance for ourselves, and how to expand our circle of concern. In a time where many people feel increasingly lonely and divided, the transformative power of lovingkindness allows us to relate to ourselves and others with friendliness and compassion. We will use as a primary text Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness by Sharon Salzberg.
Open to beginners and experienced practitioners alike.
