Greetings Mindful Friends
Monday night we will share Sally Clough Armstrong's teaching:The Beautiful Qualities of Compassion and Equanimity
The four Brahma Viharas are loving-kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity. The foundation practice is metta, or loving-kindness, which cultivates a friendly and kind attitude towards ourselves, others and all experiences. When this caring heart meets suffering, it naturally responds with compassion. But the last Brahma Vihara, equanimity, the quality of calm acceptance, is necessary to keep the heart in balance and open to all the joys and sorrows of our lives.
In light & Love
