Date & Time
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Compassion is the medicine we most need as individuals and as a species to heal suffering and free our spirits. Radical Compassion has three key elements: it is an embodied experience (a felt sense of tenderness), it is inclusive of all beings, and it naturally moves us to act from a caring heart.
Please join us for this special evening with Tara Brach as she explores the alchemy of Radical Compassion and guides us in awakening this intrinsic expression of our evolutionary potential.
Co-presented by New York Insight Meditation Center and sponsored by Tricycle: A Buddhist Review magazine.
Note: Ticket price includes a copy of Tara Brach’s upcoming book, Radical Compassion: Learning to Love Yourself and Your World with the Practice of RAIN. (Viking, 2020) Books will be distributed upon check in at the event.
