A Liberated Heart: Opening to Love, Compassion, Equanimity, and Joy
A Daylong for Women
Saturday, March 30
10 am – 4 pm
SF Dharma Collective, 2701 Folsom St.
With Eve Ekman and Juliana Sloane
Join us for a day of community, connection, and exploration of the four Brahma Viharas (Divine Abodes): Metta (love), Karuna (compassion), Mudita (empathetic joy), and Upekkha (equanimity). In the company of our fellow women practitioners, we will connect deeply with these essential heart qualities and their role in our lives.
The Brahma Viharas point us towards a way of meeting our lives that is courageous, caring, and deeply transformative: turning towards experience with an open heart and responding appropriately to what that moment truly calls for. Through practice, discussion, and story, we will explore together how these four immeasurables can help us meet the joys and challenges of our lives more fully.
This daylong is open to all who self-identify as women.
