The Brahma Viharas Illuminated
This 5-week series is given as part of the regular Sunday class in Vienna.
We know that greed, ill-will and delusion are the mental states that keep us locked in the cycle of suffering. The Brahman Viharas, or Four Divine Abodes, are positive states of mind that, when intentionally cultivated, can serve as antidotes to suffering.
Join us for this five-part series as we explore each of these positive mental states, and learn specific practices that can lead to freedom.
September 9: Overview of the Four Divine Abodes: Loving-Kindness, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy and Equanimity
September 16: Loving-Kindness (Metta)
September 23: Compassion (Karuna)
September 30: Sympathetic Joy (Mudita)
October 7: Equanimity (Upekkha)
Insight meditation cultivates our natural wisdom and compassion. Meditation practice develops concentration, which allows us to calm and steady the mind.
Both newcomers to meditation and long time practitioners are invited to attend our classes in metro D.C. No registration is necessary. Chairs are always provided or you may bring your sitting gear.
