"Facing Ourselves with Compassion and Courage"

Suitable for new and experienced meditators

Shastri Jil Amadio teaches us how the willingness to open our heart to ourselves is an essential step on our journey.  Through the practice of meditation we develop the courage to embrace, rather than reject, the painful aspects of our experience.  By coming into contact with our experience we develop greater empathy for ourselves and for others, giving rise to joy.  In this session, Shastri Amadio will introduce practical methods for developing ongoing kindness toward ourselves and others.

This is one of an innovative new series offered twice a month on Saturday mornings with senior Shambhala teacher Shastri Jil Amadio. Jil will offer teachings, practical advice and inspiration to support you as you explore the richness and challenge of meditation practice
