  • 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm Viviendo Compasión

    Viviendo Compasión - Programa de entrenamiento en el cultivo de la compasión con Sandra Sanabria (8 semanas)

    La compasión es una capacidad innata e instintiva que nos permite conectarnos con otros seres. Cultivar la compasión nos ayuda a deshacernos del odio, de los juicios y de las aversiones que tienden a surgir en nuestras mentes ante situaciones dolorosas o difíciles. La compasión nos ayuda a reemplazar la confusión con paz interior que termina por propagarse a nuestro mundo exterior.  Es muy recomendable asistir a las 8 clases para aprovechar al máximo el curso, ya que cada reunión incluye presentaciones y discusiones en grupo que son componentes clave del proceso de entrenamiento. Puedes encontrar más información sobre el programa visita www.vivalacompasion.org/cultivo-de-compasion. Por favor, llenar el formulario (www.vivalacompasion.org/viviendocompasion2020) para añadir tu nombre a la lista del curso y así recibir los correos semanales con el resumen de cada clase, contenido adicional y el enlace para las meditaciones guiadas.

    Cuándo: Jueves 7 a 9 pm, octubre 1 a noviembre 19, 2020.

    When: Thursdays 7 a 9 pm, October 1 to November 19, 2020.

    Celebrating Earth Care Week 


    Saturday, October 3rd., 10;00 am-12:00 pm

    On Zoom. Connect to Zoom here or with the information below

    An opportunity to practice together and reflect on the Dhamma teachings of nature in our own experience. What aspects of nature have we pushed away? How can we collectively support the healing of our natural world?
    If possible, join us from a natural setting or gather some elements of nature around you.
    Ayya Santussika is resident and founder of Karuna Buddhist Vihara

    Let nature teach you ~ Ajahn Chah

    “The forest is peaceful, why aren’t you? You hold on to things causing your confusion. Let nature teach you. Hear the bird’s song then let go. If you know nature, you’ll know Dhamma. If you know Dhamma, you’ll know nature.” – Ajahn Chah
