A Benefit for Spirit Rock and Insight Meditation Community of Washington, DC

Description:
The medicine our world calls for is compassion; we need to love ourselves and each other into healing and freedom. While compassion arises naturally, the flowering of full, mature compassion—Radical Compassion—requires training.

This workshop offers a powerful tool for cultivating compassion. Using the RAIN meditation we will directly awaken the four dimensions of Radical Compassion—mindfulness, embodied presence, active caring and all-inclusiveness. Beginning with our inner life, we’ll explore widening the circles of compassion through a sequence of short talks, guided meditations, and interpersonal meditations and reflections. The day will include time for questions and sharing.
