Residential Weekend – Radical Compassion: The Courage to Love Ourselves and Our World – Kripalu, West Stockbridge, MA
November 13 @ 6:00 pm - November 15 @ 12:00 pm
Stockbridge, MA – Radical Compassion: The Courage to Love Ourselves and Our World
For everyone; no meditation experience required.
Imagine who you would be if you truly held your inner life and others with a tender, awake heart. How would your life change? Radical compassion is our evolutionary capacity to include all living beings in our heart and to actively express our care. This potential manifests as we develop an embodied presence and deepen our attention in relating with each other.
In this program, you learn RAIN (recognize-allow-investigate-nurture), an applied meditation for cultivating mindfulness-based compassion. Through talks, guided meditations, and small-group reflection, discover how fostering radical compassion can:
• Dissolve the armoring of blame and release limiting beliefs,
• Heal unhealthy habits,
• Connect you with your natural wisdom, creativity, and kindness.
On a global level, radical compassion frees us from unconscious bias and the pain of separation, allowing us to serve the healing of our society and our living earth.
