Practicing compassion for ourselves and for others in community not only allows us to be sustainable in our personal and community struggles but also supports us in allowing new wisdom, joy, and love to be integrated as part of our life experiences.

Join us online, where we will dip into the Buddhist practices of compassion for self and others. Enjoy offerings of music, movement, and reflection that open, nourish, and reconnect the heart. Our day together will include guided meditation, music, mindful movement, and discussion.
