What hinders our natural tendency to open and appreciate our lives? Do we acknowledge that some of the obstacles and challenges to our happiness are often sourced in the mind? Is there a way to train the mind and heart to remain open when life presents us with the unexpected or the unwanted?
In this three-hour program, the practice of compassionate abiding, as taught by Tibetan Buddhist nun Pema Chodron, will be incorporated into a morning of sitting meditation. There will also be time to reflect and discuss the everyday life of welcoming the unwelcome.
