Responding to Challenges with Wisdom, Discernment and Love
Teachers: Sharon Beckman-Brindley and Pat Coffey
Our spiritual practice call us to unconditional love and compassion. We are invited to cultivate these open-hearted qualities, beginning with all aspects of ourselves and opening outward to include all beings everywhere. This, however, is not the same as passivity or even acceptance of the harm that arises from the poisons of greed, hatred and delusion. Thanks to the recent election cycle and to current world events, we see and feel the challenges of our practice so clearly right now. How do we do this? How do we heal divisions and cultivate ourselves as fierce and loving spiritual warriors?
In this evening’s talk and discussion, we will explore together how to use our spiritual practice to respond to the challenges with wisdom, discernment, creative inspiration and love.
IMCC meets every Tuesday evening for a period of guided meditation and a talk by one of IMCC's experienced meditation teachers. The program is designed to be friendly and of interest to people with no meditation experience as well as more advanced practitioners.
