Kindness, compassion and mindfulness with John Peacock
9 April 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The practice of compassion is often seen as distinct from the practice of mindfulness. However, mindfulness without kindness and compassion can become a simple, mechanical exercise in focusing on the breath (attention) and becoming increasingly familiar with our problems. Kindness and its correlate of compassion has the power to transform mindfulness into a truly ‘caring’ practice and to be, to quote the Buddha, ‘one of the noblest ways of living in this world.’ This day will devoted to the practice of ‘mindful kindness’.
