Developing a Kind Heart
March 5, 2015 @ 7:15 pm PST - 9:00 pm PST
Developing a Kind Heart – A series that will open the heart and bring balance in relationships.
This series will nurture the development of four profound qualities of heart: loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity. These four qualities express a powerful and immeasurable intention of kindness toward ourselves and all beings. They are traditionally called the Divine Abodes (Brahma Viharas) or dwellings of the gods. When these qualities are well developed the heart-mind will be liberated from ill will, cruelty, envy, expectation and demand—one will dwell with a pure “divine” perception of all things.
