Part of a series of teachings given through the Dharma Friendship Foundation in Seattle from January 1995 to April 1996.

  • Guided meditation on the three types of compassion: observing sentient beings, observing phenomena (transience), and objectless compassion
  • Disturbing attitudes—factors which cause our mind to be unpeaceful, unsubdued
  • Discussion on the root disturbing attitude of attachment, examining its causes and effects in our lives
  • Participants are invited to examine their own attachments, their resulting attitudes and behaviors, how these create a lack of freedom and happiness
  • By examining our own attachment, having compassion for ourselves and others in the grip of this disturbing attitude, we are able to move towards freedom and bodhicitta
