The Art of Well-Being: Loving Kindness, Compassion, & Generosity

February 8 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

$55

Well-being is a skill that can be learned and cultivated; no different than learning how to play the violin. The intimate link between well-being and meditation has been carefully studied by Western scientists for decades now, revealing the potent benefits of developing the ability to be present. The traditional, tried-and-true meditation practices, however, fail to engage many modern Americans.

Friday, February 8, 2019: Loving Kindness, Compassion, & Generosity

Loving Kindness and Compassion meditation is an ancient practice known for emotional healing, mood enhancement, and overall mental well-being. It facilitates a kinder relationship within ourselves and toward others, increasing our sense of social connection. It transforms how we think, feel, and operate in the world in positive ways beyond the time that we spend practicing it. Free-writing enhances its power and facilitates the integration of these benefits between the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Learn this life-changing practice and how it can transform your relationships, mood, and outlook on life.

Date & Time: Friday, February 8, 2019 from 10am to 3pm
