    Ep 127 ~ Midweek Meditation / Awash in Compassion

    Ep 127 ~ Midweek Meditation / Awash in Compassion

    Practicing compassion by allowing ourselves to let go of reactions and rest in care about suffering.

    "May I learn to care about this/May I meet this with mercy/May I be present to myself/you in this/That I may be filled with compassion"

    As we settle in, we may find ourselves moved to deepen concentration with the simple words, "Care, Mercy, Presence, Compassion" over and over, allowing the power of this practice to flush out unhelpful rumination and refresh us for the rest of the day.

Teaching with her whole heart

Christie Bates is doing a fabulous job in this feed of combining dharma talks and teaching with practice techniques. She helps us all to understand and hopefully embody more of the practical Buddhist teachings into our modern day life.

Please subscribe and stay with this podcast. It’s fantastic with beautiful intention and consistency.

Thank you!
