Discovering (Self) Compassion: Metta Meditation with Kimberly Brown
April 8, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
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.
When practicing loving-kindness, it’s best to start wherever you are, close to yourself. In that way it’s realistic. —Lama Yeshe
