“Pema Chodron said it’s a technique for awakening compassion…’It is a method for overcoming fear of suffering and for dissolving the tightness of our heart.’”

Rev. Karen Lindvig looks at the Buddhist practices of Metta and Tonglen, as well as how compassion shows up in the teachings of Jesus. She leads the congregation through these practices, helping us to nourish the seeds of joy in ourselves and in the greater world.

The 4-minute silent meditation begins at 08:15; the minister’s talk begins at 16:40.

Today’s reading is I Am There, by James Dillet Freeman.
