This series will be emphasizing the deeply relaxing and profoundly illuminating meditation on the nature of the mind. The meditation gives us deep insight into our pure nature and great potential. Each class will highlight a different way in which we can use this meditation to deepen our understanding of how our minds create our experiences, and consequently how we can creatively and meaningfully relate to both painful and joyful emotions.


The Healing Meditation of Taking and Giving

Every Tuesday, 7:00-8:30pm

Buddha taught the sublime meditation known as taking and giving, or tonglen in Tibetan, as a special method for healing our body and mind, transforming problems, and developing the fearless open heart of a Bodhisattva on the path to enlightenment. In this series, Donna will explain this meditation and guide us into an experience of its transformative power. In particular, she will show how we can use it in many different circumstances to help us deal creatively and skillfully with the difficulties that we encounter in our life.
