Healing with the Sublime Emotions (Brahma Viharas) – 5 Week Online Meditation Course
March 1, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - April 5, 2023 @ 2:30 pm UTC-5
Join us for this course where we will systematically develop the four Sublime Emotions of Loving Kindness (Friendliness), Compassion, Sympathetic Joy, and Equanimous Love. We will do this in formal meditation and apply it to daily life.
The intended outcome is fluent access to the these sublime emotions in daily life. “The measure of a meditation practice is transformation in daily life.”
The event is donation-based but you must register to attend. It will run twice to accommodate people in different timezones.

This program is for people who are willing to do the work (meditation in this case) to become more loving, happier, and more secure in their attachment relationship.
Guided meditation will be the main focus of the program. There will be ample opportunity to ask questions and share whatever you feel comfortable with. There will be no pressure to do so; passive participation is perfectly fine.
Leading a full and happy life partially depends on your access to states of love (friendliness, compassion, joy, and unconditional love). The goal of this course is to:
– systematically develop these states in daily formal meditation practice (this is traditional in Buddhist meditation training)
– add on visualization practices to the end of each formal meditation practice where you rehearse acting out these sublime emotions with others
– integrate these states into your daily life by acting them out. That is to act from a place of friendliness, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity with others in your daily life. To that point there will be weekly homework assignments to support integration
