with Ven. Tenzin Namsel
In each moment we have a choice. A choice of whether to open to our present experience or to close down into our familiar patterns. Truly opening our hearts is a process and one that takes practice.
In this evening's discussion, meditation and Q&A, we will explore various methods for opening our hearts to the present moment, bringing wakefulness into each experience. Through this wakefulness, we can live more peaceful, compassionate lives.
