Join us for this workshop where we'll develop the capacity for sympathetic joy in formal meditation practice and then integrate it into the body and into daily life through visualization meditation

The intended outcome is to learn Sympathetic-Joy meditation. Mudita greases the wheels of life, making life sweeter and easier. We will practice in order to integrate sympathetic joy into our daily walking around life.

This program is for people who are interested in developing more friendliness towards self and other. You don't have to be a Buddhist to do this practice.
