Upcoming Events

Fri, 7/1/2016, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Metta, or Lovingkindness Meditation (LKM), is the practice of wishing oneself and others happiness, health, and ease. Based on traditional Buddhist teachings, it has become an increasingly popular practice, as it generates both concentration and a deep understanding of the nature of our connection to ourselves and others. Cultivating compassion and patience towards our experience enables us to build equanimity and courage through the constant and inevitable changing circumstances of life.

No class September 2nd in honor of holiday.

Wed, 7/6/2016, 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Each of us has been treated badly by someone at sometime in our lives; by friends or family, in our community or workplace, or even through self-inflicted guilt or shame about our own mistakes. Sometimes we can get so stuck in resentment, bitterness, or anger, that we’re prevented from understanding our distress, processing our pain, and allowing our hearts to open to new experiences. Join Kimberly Brown at this new four-week course, designed to enable you to begin the process of honoring your heart and healing your hurt feelings with wisdom and compassion.
