What is your first labelling thought when you see a person? I like, I don’t like, I don’t care. We can change that. Let your first labelling thought always be ‘may you be happy’
Venerable Lobsang Namgyel
In Buddhism we say all beings are interconnected, but how does it feel in your heart? That soft, tender loving-kindness sits in your heart which is often described as expansive and boundless. What are the walls we build around us to feel safe yet these walls only lead us to feel more alone, scared and depressed?
Over four classes on Sunday mornings, our beloved Venerable Namgyel will guide and help us on the essential topic of loving kindness. Venearable Namgyel will also incorporate Zen master Thích Nhất Hạnh’s teaching on Loving Kindness especially with regards to relationships and the families. Each class is two hours long with a short break in between. Between the Sundays, participants will be expected to maintain simple practices throughout the week. You will have an opportunity to ask questions, the class on June 28th will be open for a question and answer session. We encourage you to join all four Sundays if possible as it will provide you the chance to immerse yourself in the teachings of loving kindness and allow it to permeate all aspects of your life.
