Every living being needs every other living being in order to survive and thrive, especially when the voices of division, fear, and hopelessness appear to dominate our collective narratives. It is easy to feel like we are alone, powerless, and/or heart weary in times like these. Join us for a nourishing day in community devoted to (re)discovering and cultivating heart remedies that inspire and energize us, while supporting our deepest sense of happiness and well-being. We'll explore practical, everyday ways of meeting ourselves, our practice, and our lives with courage, hope, and love. Our time together will include guided meditation, Dharma reflections, stories, Q&A, and plenty of time to talk with each other. All are warmly welcome!

This Is How Civilizations Heal: The Alchemy of the Three Poisons

The three poisons—greed, aversion, and delusion—are mind states that cloud the heart and mind. However, by clearly recognizing the three poisons, we can meet them with their antidotes of generosity, mettā, and wisdom. Generosity expands our ability to feel connected and reminds us that we belong to each other. Mettā opens the heart, protecting us from both inner and outer harm, while wisdom allows us to see things right sized as we move through the world.
