Bring more kindness and joy to yourself and the world with this weekly workshop

About this event

Tools for Being Human is a by donation weekly online workshop. Register to receive the link for this online class.

For over 2,500 years the Buddhist tradition has created powerful tools to work with our minds. These tools are practical, direct ways to bring something different to the world. More kindness. More joy. Each session will explore various practices including Tonglen "sending/receiving", Maitri "loving-kindness", LoJong "mind training" and other meditative practices to help cultivate sanity for ourselves and others. The class will focus on practical and everyday applications so they can apply directly to when we need them most. Despite the rich heritage of philosophical and intellectual study in Buddhism, at its heart is something very basic and direct. We will explore that.
