March 25: Taking and giving in daily life
From time to time in our lives, all of us struggle with physical or mental pain, or we watch a loved one experiencing problems. Often times, we feel as if we cannot help ourselves or others in their struggles. In Buddhist teachings, the profound, ancient meditation known as “taking and giving” provides us with a way of healing ourselves and gaining the power to heal others.
During this class series, Kris Dennis will explain how to begin and make progress with the taking and giving meditations. Not only will students learn how to engage in the formal meditation of taking and giving, they will also learn how to apply taking and giving in the midst of busy daily life. Everyone is welcome, no experience necessary. Drop in for any class.
Each class will begin with a brief guided meditation, followed by a short teaching. There will be time at the end of class for question and answer and/or discussion. Drop in for any class — no need to attend each class. Everyone is welcome.
