Opening the Heart is the path to well-being and happiness. When we are caught in fear, self-absorption, and judgement, the heart feels constricted. Freed of its fear, the heart naturally opens, and we begin to relate to ourself, to others, and to all life with love, compassion, joy, and wisdom. The teachings and practices known as the Four Immeasureables are time-tested methods for cultivating fearlessness and allowing the full-flowering of our natural capacity to be in relationship.
Each class includes teaching, written instructions, guided meditations, and time for Q&A. No prior experience with meditation is required. These practices can be done by anyone, regardless of their spiritual tradition. After the classes end, a weekly follow-up meeting will be offered at no cost to answer questions and help you maintain a regular practice.
Classes meet weekly on Zoom. When you submit your registration form, you will see the message, You have successfully registered. You will receive an email with the Zoom link for class and a short reading to prepare for the first meeting a few days prior to the class. If possible, please register at least one day prior to the first class so that you will have time to complete the short reading.
There is a suggested donation of $60, which covers the four classes. Any amount is gratefully accepted. Your practice of generosity makes it possible for those of limited means to participate in the class.
