Weekend of May 21-22  : Buddhist Seminar : Unconditional Love :  with Sam Bercholz.   

In this special teaching seminar event, Sam Bercholz, a senior teacher in the Nyingma and Kagyud traditions of Buddhism, and founder of Shambhala Publications, will teach "A New Approach to Loving-Kindness Meditation"

About: The unconditional love that we all long for—in our lives and in the world around us—can be awakened effectively with this unique approach to the Buddhist practice of living kindness meditation, based on the teachings of the sublime Tibetan Buddhist master, Tulku Thondup Rinpoche. This seminar will include be detailed guidance for meditation, prayers and visualization in four simple stages that can be practiced in as little as thirty minutes a session.

Loving-kindness meditations are a highly effective way to generate positive causation, bring true peace and love into our lives and release ourselves from habitual suffering. When we train ourselves to desire the happiness and well-being of others, with the unconditional love of a mother who cares wholeheartedly for her little ones, we find our whole world pervaded by positive qualities of joy, peace and beauty. 

In the Outer Buddha stage, we open our heart with trust and devotion to the Buddha of Loving-Kindness and enjoy his unconditional love. In the Inner Buddha Stage, we experience the Buddha’s unconditional love within and for ourselves. In the Universal Buddha Stage, we learn to see, hear, and feel the world around us as a blessed realm of unconditional love. In the Ultimate Buddha Stage, we rest in the awareness of unconditional love free from conceptual thinking.

This course is accessible to newcomers as well as experienced meditators and those in the helping professions.
