Join Rev. Laura for a new class series in June!
Text: “The Force of Kindness: Change Your Life with Love & Compassion”
– by Sharon Salzberg
It is not necessary to purchase or read the book or to be familiar with Metta Meditation, though participants are welcome to buy the book for themselves.
Sharon Salzberg is the cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society and the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, and an international leader of meditation retreats. Over three weeks, we will touch on the six chapters in this book. Each
week we will examine the main idea in one of her chapters for one hour; covering two chapters over the two hours. Each idea will be examined through a brief presentation, questions for journaling and/or sharing in small groups, and a guided meditation using
Salzberg’s teaching of Metta Meditation.
June 13: Compassion in Action and Kindness Toward Ourselves
June 20: Overcoming Cruelty and How We See the World
June 27: Ethics and Kindness and The Intention of Kindness
Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a journal and your favorite writing instrument.
