Meditations to Heal Our World
Compassion without burnout

It may seem like compassion takes energy from us, and we may feel drained or sad by others suffering. Come explore the joy of compassion understanding that it’s true function is a mind wishing to protect others from suffering.

In this series, we will explore the healing and soothing connection between our compassionate mind with family, friends, co-workers and ultimately all living beings. This compassionate wish to protect others is our Buddha seed which only humans have the ability to generate and maintain purposefully. By engaging our mind of compassion, it gives us energy and the opportunity to heal our world.

Taught by Katherine Brown, senior  Buddhist teacher at AKBC, classes are designed for all levels of experience, from beginner to advance. You will gain experience of meditation and go deeper into Buddhist philosophy. Each class includes a brief meditation to start, followed by a short teaching, concluding with a second guided meditation, with time for questions and answers.
