This workshop's start date has passed.

Workshop Details

When we develop a basic kindness towards ourselves, we not only learn to accept the difficult parts, but in the process embrace our humanity and see more clearly the beauty that's inside of us. We become less preoccupied with being “good enough,” and as we do that, we allow our goodness and true nature to shine through. As we learn to access our own beautiful qualities, we can also more easily recognize them in others. This becomes a gift to every encounter, a healing energy that awakens the goodness in life around us.
In this workshop, we will explore key components of James Baraz’s popular Awakening Joy course. Using classical loving-kindness or metta practices, mindfulness meditation, and experiential exercises, we will learn how to use tools to develop genuine forgiveness, compassion, and kindness toward ourselves, and to share those qualities with others.
