RETREATS

Keeping Your Heart Open: Working With Anger and Hatred

Saturday, March 11, 2017, 10 am - 4 pm
The Interdependence Project

28 West 27th Street, Suite 704 Between Broadway and 6th Avenue

It's a challenging time for many of us to keep our hearts open in the
face of disturbing events and destructive speech and behavior in the
world and our society. How can we stand firm skillfully, without
getting overwhelmed by anger or hatred? The development of The Four
Immeasurables: Lovingkindness, Compassion, Joy, and Equanimity, can
support clear decision making, wise action, and compassion for all
beings, including ourselves.

The day will consist of alternating periods of sitting meditation,
walking meditation, gentle stretching, and teachings on the Four
Immeasurables. Meditation instruction in mindfulness and the Four
Immeasurables is included.

$80 - Full Price
$75 - Members Price
$65 - Early Bird Price - Register by March 4!
