How to take responsibility for cultivating compassion in our own lives.
Series: Developing Compassion in Challenging Times Retreat (2017)
A series of talks given during the Developing Compassion in Challenging Times Retreat at Sravasti Abbey in April 2017.
A meditation on equanimity, in which we imagine those whom we currently find challenging in an entirely different and expansive light.
Exploring the meditation on the kindness of others, and various obstacles to compassion, including the mind of discouragement and unrealistic expectations.
How to fit the practice of equanimity into our daily lives, and outlining the taking-and-giving meditation.
Imagining taking on all the suffering of others in order to destroy our own self-centred attitude, creating the space to be able to give expansively to others.
