Empathy & Wisdom - A Meditation Public Talk ~ with special guest teacher Gen Kelsang Thekchen
Friday April 7, 2017 | 7-8.30pm | St Michaels Anglican Church . 1505 5th Ave | $15
Opening our heart to others and letting the love flow becomes natural and easy when we can stop being so hung up on ourselves. In Buddhism, wisdom and compassion are said to be like 2 wings of a bird — our wisdom realizing the dream-like nature of our self and our compassion reaching out to others complement each other, flying us to the city of fulfillment and joy.
In this teaching and guided meditation, we will practice an enjoyable and accessible meditation for opening our heart and deepening our wisdom, both at the same time! This is sure to give you food for thought and put a smile on your face. Everyone is welcome!
