What does it mean when we refer to “self“? And what does it mean when we refer to “other”? Buddha’s teachings on exchanging self with others allow us to let go of our self-centered approach to life and to open our hearts and truly empathize with others. The more we learn to see the world from others’ point of view, the more our empathy will grow. This will not only help us in all of our relationships, it will naturally inspire great meaning within our life. In this way we develop universal compassion, the most altruistic and beneficial mind of all, and the springboard from which enlightenment will arise.
This talk will consist of guided meditations and practical teachings. Refreshments will be available.
No experience necessary. Everyone is welcome!
