in collaboration with Tricycle: The Buddhist Review
Cultivate four transformative qualities of the heart as pathways of insight and awakening. Kindness, appreciative joy, compassion, and equanimity enrich our lives and allow us to be flourishing, creative, dynamic people. Known in the Buddha’s teaching as the brahma-viharas, these qualities also imbue us with the resiliency to meet life’s challenges. Join Christina Feldman and Chris Cullen for a deeply practical online course exploring the brahma-viharas as complete paths to the awakening of the heart.
