Discovering (Self) Compassion: Metta Meditation with Kimberly Brown
August 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
When practicing loving-kindness, it’s best to start wherever you are, close to yourself. In that way it’s realistic. —Lama Yeshe
Though compassion is often confused with putting others’ welfare above our own, real wisdom understands that genuine self-concern is a necessary foundation for kindness and compassion toward all beings. In this meditation, we’ll look at the difference between self-compassion and self-indulgence, transform emotional barriers and resistance, and practice responding to self-judgment and criticism with understanding and patience.
This program is open to everyone and beginners are welcome. No experience with meditation is necessary.
