Developing Profound Empathy and Love (MKE)

During these weekly classes Gen Dorje will offer teachings and guided meditations on how to recognize and develop our capacity for profound empathy and love. Each class will explore a topic related to deepening our capacity for developing a profound love. 

In ordinary life, we often confuse love with desirous attachment, and as a result we often experience pain and disappointment within our so-called ‘loving’ relationships. But authentic love can never cause pain. It only ever produces happiness. Why? Because true love actually arises from a profound understanding of our interdependence and interconnection with everyone. This understanding liberates us from our painful self-centered grasping attachments, and opens us to an expansive and ever more inclusive empathy and love that brings joy, harmony and purpose into our lives.

Topics will include Learning to Love without Pain; Developing Equanimity; Remembering Kindness; Cherishing Others;  …and more!

Everyone welcome!
