Session 1

5th April 2020
The Brahma Viharas: Cultivating the four qualities in uncertain times

With Martine Batchelor and Chris Cullen

Join our teachers for a rich dialogue on how orientating towards, or remembering these qualities of kindness, compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity can contribute to ours and others’ wellbeing in fearful times.
Explore the ways that these four orientations can enable and protect each other, providing practical support for resilience, resourcefulness and compassionate responding midst times of crisis and difficulty.
We’ll also look at ways we can cultivate them and offer opportunities to discuss your experiences alongside peers and teachers, as well as a period of silent reflection.
