This Sunday at Alameda Sangha: Compassion, Aging and Ilness

"We might reject everything else: religion ideology, all received wisdom. But we cannot escape the necessity of love and compassion."
- His Holiness the Dalai Lama
The topic for this Sunday will be a discussion on compassion, aging and illness. Can you imagine a mind state in which there is no bitter, condemning judgment of oneself or of others? Compassion allows us to bear witness to the suffering in the world, whether it is in ourselves or others, without fear. Join me for an exploration of how we can cultivate compassion in our life through our practice, on and off the pillow. 

Blessings. Baruch
