“Mindful Self-Compassion as Maitri: A Pathway to Happiness” - Laura Liss

  • 02 Feb 2020
  • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
  • WHS Meditation Center, Avila Village

While many of us regularly practice loving kindness (metta in Pali and maitri in Sanskrit), how fully are we included in this circle of compassion? Rather than being a selfish act, as we learn to relate to the imperfections of life and ourselves with open hearts and minds, unconditional kindness towards ourselves can give us the emotional resources needed to care for others as well.

This talk will explore the common misconceptions of mindful self-compassion as well as ways to bring it more fully into our lives and will include research by Christopher Germer and Kristin Neff as well as wisdom from Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield and Pema Chodron.
