The medicine our world calls for is compassion; we need to love ourselves and each other into healing. While compassion arises naturally, the flowering of full, mature compassion—Radical Compassion—requires training.
This talk focuses on the RAIN meditation, a four-step weave of mindfulness and self-compassion that brings healing to difficult emotions. RAIN is an acronym for a four-step process: recognize, allow, investigate, and nurture.
Beginning with befriending our inner life, we’ll explore widening the circles of compassion to include all living beings.
The session will include didactic presentation, guided meditation and time for questions and sharing.
