The healing power of innate love and wisdom
By Frank Simons
The Meditation Center presents the Tricycle Retreat Series The Healing Power of Innate Love and Wisdom: Meditations from Tibet for Westerners, Part 1, Letting Be by John Makransky. To receive love deeply and extend it impartially can help the mind relax into its most natural state—the wisdom of openness, simplicity, and presence beyond self-clinging. When this unity of love and wisdom is embodied in relationships, service, and action, it can become a supremely curative power for our world. In this retreat, meditation practices from Tibet are adapted for fresh access to Westerners, with a special focus on our innate capacities for loving compassion and wisdom.
