Retreat Dharma Talks

Opening the Heart with Mindfulness and Compassion

These talks explore and practise how mindfulness and compassion can be cultivated together in a mutually supportive way.

Compassion prevents mindfulness from becoming a cool or indifferent awareness; equally, mindfulness deepens our ability to extend compassion toward the suffering of ourselves and others without being overwhelmed. Practised together, these beautiful qualities of the heart can open up the path to a more meaningful and awakened life.

The retreat drew on traditional and contemporary approaches to mindfulness and compassion practice.
