Contemplative Compassion

Awakening the Heart of Compassion

 with Harry Pickens


Compassion is central to every major faith tradition. It is the desire we have to love ourselves more deeply and to experience a sense of connection with others. Compassion guides us in how to open our hearts, to work at alleviating human suffering, and to honor the sanctity of all beings. Meditation is a strategy for uncovering this radiant beauty in ourselves and manifesting it to the world. This course explores the methods of meditation for cultivating compassion, loving-kindness, and empathy that enable us to be agents of healing in a wounded world. Prerequisite: Beginning Meditation course.
