Our lives can be so full and move so fast that it's easy to feel disconnected--from ourselves, from others, and from the world around us. But if we are able to bring awareness and compassion to whatever we are facing, everything is transformed.
During this weekend, Patrick will share insights and practices of meditation and compassion from the Buddhist tradition. We will take a closer look at our minds and the tricks it can play. We will learn methods for cultivating our empathy and compassion. And we will discover how we can begin to transform our attitudes and relationships.
The weekend will be conducted in a spirit of open enquiry, presenting practical advice and tools that you can make part of your everyday life--at home...at work...anywhere.
Patrick Gaffney is a meditation teacher and writer who has studied and practiced Buddhism for over 40 years. He is the co-editor of Sogyal Rinpoche's groundbreaking book, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, and has edited two books by the Dalai Lama.
