Online: Rest, Resilience, Renewal, Release – Exploring the four brahmavihāra heart qualities in daily life with Jill Shepherd

12 May 2023 7:00pm - 9:00pm,
13 May 2023 9:00am - 5:00pm
and 14 May 2023 9:00am - 5:00pm

EVENT DESCRIPTION

The four brahmavihāra heart practices of kindness, compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity are powerful tools that strengthen our inner resources, helping us to navigate the individual and collective challenges of our times.

Although the brahmavihāra are often taught as formal meditation practices to develop concentration, in this online weekend retreat, we will explore a range of different approaches aimed at cultivating these skillful qualities in the midst of everyday life. Through a mix of guided meditations, dharma talks and small group discussion, we will develop the capacity to rest in kindness, strengthen resilience through compassion, orient to appreciative joy for renewal of our energy, and experience the peace of equanimity that comes through the release of reactivity.

This retreat is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced practitioners. However, please make a commitment to attending all of the sessions over three days as this is not a drop-in event.
