Dear Open Heart Project,
I hope you and your loved ones are well. Please let me hear how you are doing? What is difficult? What is helping? I’d love to know.
I once had the chance to interview the wonderful vipassana meditation teacher Tara Brach about compassion. I asked her what she advised her students who were finding it difficult to be compassionate because…people. It’s not easy! However her answer was so direct and straightforward–and right. She taught what helps to keep our hearts open in a chaotic world. Before this week’s sit, I share her answer with you.
Please remember that the Open Heart Project is offering four live meditation gatherings per day, Monday-Friday. All the details are here. The 3rd sitting is in Spanish. Yoga Nidra has been introduced in certain sessions. Please feel free to share if you know others who would benefit from sitting in community. FREE.
With love, S
PS If you are looking for more connection, support, and friendship, please consider joining the Open Heart Project sangha. Now is the time time to renew our commitment to sanity, courage, and gentleness. Details are here.
