February 2 / 9:30 AM - June 8 / 12:30 PM
The dates for the next practices are: February 2, April 6, May 4, June 8, 2014
Maitri bhavana : 9:30am -10:45am
‘Maitri’ means kindness, and ‘bhavana’ is virtue or quality. This group practice is about developping unlimited kindness by opening our heart to the suffering of others and surrounding them with the loving kindness they need. Maitri bhavana includes the practice of sending and receiving known as Tonglen.
A MAITRI BHAVANA sheet is posted at the Center on which you may write your name and name(s) of those who are troubled, sick or dying. Their names may appear on the list as often as needed. If you cannot come to the Center to fill out the sheet, you may add names by contacting Maurice Pressé at firstname.lastname@example.org
ALL ARE WARMLY INVITED TO PARTICPATE IN THIS PRACTICE. YOU ARE WELCOME TO BRING YOUR FRIENDS!
White Tara : 11:00am-12 :30pm
This practice of compassion was created by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and is composed of meditation, visualization, and the recitation of a mantra. It develops peace, serenity, and protection. The practice session also includes a group reading of a short text by Pema Chödrön, followed by an exchange.
