Meditations that Heal the Heart

Both our being and the cosmos long to heal; to be whole. According to Buddhism’s bodhichitta tradition, when we open the human heart, this longing is expressed as a transformative warmth - warmth capable of bringing healing to ourselves, others, and this world. Using the Meditating with the Body practices of Reggie Ray, this workshop will guide us into our unique physical incarnation and welcome the heart’s potent tenderness into our lives. Same weekend as Meditations that Uncover Our Lives.
Facilitator: Neil McKinlay
