Awakening the Kind Heart Retreat with Ven. Sangye Khadro

April 22 @ 4:00 pm - April 24 @ 2:00 pm PDT

Awakening the Kind Heart: How to Meditate on Compassion

A Residential Weekend Retreat with Ven. Sangye Khadro

In person and on Vimeo Livestream

Everyone appreciates kindness. A smile, a few friendly words, a show of concern when we’re troubled or feeling unwell, an offer of help – gestures of kindness like these brighten our day and ease whatever sadness we may feel in our hearts.

Feeling that “someone cares” fulfills a very deep need that we all have. And just as we appreciate other people being kind to us, others appreciate it when we are kind to them. That is why it is important to learn to be kind, because it will help make our relationships and interactions with others more satisfying and less problematic.

Spend your weekend with Ven. Sangye Khadro as she teaches from her book, Awakening the Kind Heart: How to Meditate on Compassion. 

The course includes meditations, teachings, and group discussion.
