Date & Time
9:30 am - 5:00 pm
Tara Brach and Jonathan Foust
Compassion is the medicine we most need as individuals and a species to heal suffering and free our spirits. In this workshop with Tara Brach and Jonathan Foust, we will use the acronym RAIN (Recognize-Allow-Investigate-Nurture) to explore the healing and spiritual freedom that becomes possible as we learn to contact the vulnerability within ourselves and others, and respond with a loving heart. Our time together will include talks, meditations, paired (dyadic) practice and discussion, all held in the safe space of a caring community.
Co-presented by New York Insight Meditation Center and sponsored by Tricycle: A Buddhist Review magazine.
Prerequisite: a regular meditation practice.
