Cultivating Kindness in Daily Life: 2-Part Workshop
Sundays, June 3 & 10
How do we develop more kindness, compassion and friendship in our lives?
Loving kindness opens the vastness of the mind and heart, which is ultimately our greatest protection. It helps us cope with fear and other forms of suffering. Living with kindness and in friendship is essential for our survival. Practicing kindness can be intentionally cultivated through mindfulness practices. Once cultivated we can feel more alive and connected to others and, to ourselves.
In this 2-part class workshop you will learn specific techniques to train the mind and heart toward a greater kindness and compassion. We will start with cultivating more kindness toward ourselves and then move outwards, widening the circle of care and friendliness.

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.
