loving-kindness for the modern world
In October 2018, Lodro led an online class on loving-kindness practice, emptiness, and compassion. You can now own the video and audio recordings of this essential course.
Let’s face it: this world could use a bit more love. Being a part of what can feel like an increasingly aggressive society is hard and we need tools to be strong but loving in response. Join Lodro for a five week series where we trace loving-kindness back to the original teachings of the Buddha and learn how to bring this simple concept into the nitty-gritty details of our life.
Week 1: Self-Love and Self-Loathing - Why Don't We Think We Deserve Love?
Week 2: Loving Thy Neighbor and Thy Difficult People
Week 3: Emptiness - Why the Glass Actually Is Half-Full
Week 4: Strengthening Our Compassion for Society
Week 5: Sympathetic Joy and Cultivating Equanimity for the Hard Times (Which, Last I Checked, Were Pretty Damn Frequent)
Consider this your tool-kit for keeping an open heart in times of transition. Each recording includes a short guided meditation, a talk, and Lodro addressing the questions on the material.
