Making a Home in the Brahmaviharas
4 Tuesdays, March 9 - 30; 4:00-5:45pm
Suggested donation: $32-80 registration + teacher donation (we encourage you to consider teacher dana equal to or greater than the amount you gave for registration)*
Lovingkindness, compassion, appreciative joy, and equanimity are considered "Divine Dwelling Places,” known as the “Brahmaviharas," in Buddhist teaching and practice. These qualities give our hearts and minds a home based in connection, caring, clear seeing, spaciousness, and balance.
In this class we will explore each of the Brahmaviharas and practices for cultivating them in relation to ourselves, our daily lives, those dear to us and those challenging to us, and the arenas of social and planetary concern that matter to us. We will also explore forgiveness, which is not named as one of the Brahmaviharas but is implicit in them.
ZOOM LINK will be provided by the teacher.
*In keeping with the Buddhist tradition of dana (generosity), the suggested registration amounts for our classes and retreats (other than Wednesday night dharma talks) do not include any payment for the teacher. The teachers are paid entirely out of the students' generosity. Please consider giving a donation to the teacher in order to support their ability to continue to share the dharma. You may give a donation at the time of registration and give later donations through our teacher dana link. Everyone is welcome to all of our events regardless of ability to donate.
You can give online or send checks to InsightPV, 116 Pleasant Street, Suite 242, Easthampton, MA 01027.
