An Introduction to Lovingkindness - A Four-Week Series with Kimberly Brown and Mona Chopra
Lovingkindness Meditation (LKM), is the practice of wishing oneself and others happiness, health, and ease. Based on traditional Buddhist teachings, LKM has become an increasingly popular practice, as it generates both concentration and a deep understanding of the nature of our connection to ourselves and others. Cultivating compassion and patience towards our experience enables us to build equanimity and courage through the constant and inevitable changing circumstances of life.
Originally recorded a part of IDP's Study at Home program, each class recording includes guided LKM, an exploration of the principles which support this practice, and discussion and questions.
Class 1: An Introduction to The Four Immeasurables
Class 2: Compassion, with practice focused on a Dear Friend
Class 3: Appreciative Joy, with practice focused on a Stranger
Class 4: Equanimity, with practice focused on a Difficult Person
