THE PRACTICE OF BODHICITTA:  BE COMPASSION

“The Best dharma practice, the most perfect, most substantial, is without doubt the practice of bodhicitta.”

Bodhicitta is simply to open our hearts to all sentient beings with compassion. It’s often called the “Wish Fulfilling Jewel,” because like a magic jewel it brings true happiness. This unique workshop will open up with a discussion about the Bodhicitta way and into a guided meditation on Bodhicitta. After, you will move into various subtle stretches to open the body slightly and then ease into a yin/ restorative sequence to relax more and feel the ground beneath you. It is a time to quiet the mind and open the connected tissues as well as restore the nervous system of the body. It will end with an extended blissful savasana.
