Buddhist Metta Bhavana: For a Generous Spirit
METTA BHAVANA: FOR A GENEROUS SPIRIT
Please join Julia Frodahl for this 2-part course on cultivating loving-kindness and compassion at a deep and genuine level. The well-spring of compassion already lives within each of us. Our work lies in removing the obstacles. Come to better understand the wisdom of kindness, so that you and all those around you may more often enjoy its generous flow. In addition to teaching the ancient Buddhist metta bhavana practice, Julia will also address the uniquely Western expressions of suffering that get in the way of compassion — namely, our difficulty with belonging and self love. Through this course, you’ll discover clear insights that will help free you from the illusions of scarcity and the illusions of separation that our hyper-individualized culture tends to breed.
