About the Event
(Hybrid; taught by Kevin Thew Forester) Christ heart is a heart alive with compassion, joy, and spontaneity; a heart not continually weighed down by stress, anger, and fear; a heart at rest and wholly embodied – not walled-off in pain. Christ heart is a heart awakening as Holy Mystery. Join us as we learn to practice awakening through the Brahma Viharas of Innate Goodness, Karuṇā (Compassion), Mettā (Unconditional Love), Muditā (Joy), and Upekkhā (Equanimity).
