Compassion as a Practice

This past Sunday Joey offered the guidance of several teachers to deepen both our questions and our commitment in the practice of compassion.

We began with a guided meditation by Tara Brach using the practice of “RAIN” for self-compassion. We then listened to Gil Fronsdal in an excerpt from his thought-provoking dharma talk, “Don’t Give Up Your Own Welfare for the Welfare of Others”.
