May 7th: Taking Away Suffering Using Meditation with Eva Brzeski
We all feel some compassion at some time or another; this is our Buddha nature. If we gradually extend the scope of our compassion, we will eventually develop spontaneous compassion for all living beings– which is what our world needs so much now!
May 14th: Choosing Kindness: A Special Mothers Day Talk with Judith Sweet.
From the Buddhist point of view, cherishing others is the best method for establishing peace--peace within our family, our community, our country, and the world--as well as establishing our own inner peace.
One beautiful way to understand and practice cherishing others is to recognize the kindness of others, starting with our parents and extending our view out to others who have helped us. This attitude of loving kindness grows our good heart and in turn nourishes the growth of others' good qualities. Thus we begin to understand that we are all interconnected in a web of kindness form which it is impossible to separate ourself.
May 21st Taking Away Your Own Future Suffering
In meditation, we imagine taking on all our future suffering; this helps destroy our own causes of future suffering. We meditate on this feeling of joy for as long as possible
