A Day of Heart Practices in Baltimore

FULL DAY attendance  (1-6 p.m.)

FIRST SESSION  (1-3:30 p.m.)                           

SECOND SESSION (3:30-6 p.m.)

The cultivation of Heart Practices (Kindness, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy, Equanimity) is one of the potent methods the Buddha taught to break down our sense of separateness from ourselves, each other and the world. These techniques were designed also to help us deal with fear and to begin to change our environment and our relationship to it.

This workshop will include a variety of heart practices. The early session (1-3:30 p.m.) will focus on heart practices directed toward oneself--including self-kindness, self-compassion, and gratitude. The second session (3:30-6 p.m.) will focus on heart practices directed toward others–including working with kindness toward people who are challenging, compassion for those who are suffering, and equanimity in the midst of a constantly changing world.

The workshop will include teacher talks, guided meditations, group discussions and personal meditation time.

This venue is handicapped accessible.

Parking: There is free parking in the parking lot.

IMCW Retreats and Workshops

IMCW retreats and workshops offer instruction in Buddhist meditation and talks on the awakening of our natural insight, love and wisdom. While the meditation practices derive from the Buddhist tradition, they are universal in orientation and address spiritual themes of concern to all contemplative traditions.

A workshop is not primarily silent (talking may be allowed during breaks and lunch) and may be focused on a special topic, such as applying meditation to relationships, emotional healing or physical well-being. Workshops may include a variety of formats, including different reflections and exercises and the sharing of experiences.

Teachers: Stan Eisenstein, Nancy Brutsché

Retreat manager: Stan Eisenstein
