Healing from the Heart
– Taking and giving meditations
Open to everyone, this course will include guided meditations and teachings on the ancient practice of taking and giving. Taking and giving is a powerful method to increase our spiritual strength, maintain a positive mind in the face of adversities, and develop a kind heart. In meditation we courageously take on others’ suffering by means of compassion and we give them pure happiness by means of love. This practise helps us to actualize the tremendous potential we all have for unbiased love and universal compassion.
This meditation also destroys the cause of all of our suffering and fears – our selfish / “self-cherishing” mind, thereby healing ourself from mental and physical suffering. By destroying our self-cherishing mind we naturally become a fearless, joyful person with a vast capacity for helping others in the most beneficial ways. What could be more meaningful than this!
