Why Are We So Hard on Ourselves?

with Jil Amadio
November 27 / 8:15 PM - November 27 / 9:15 PM

Join us on this Wednesday evening, November 27, at 8:15pm for a talk and discussion led by Shastri Jil Amadio.

Listening to our internal dialogue we can find we are relentlessly self-critical, unkind and unforgiving.  This harsh approach to our pain sabotages our efforts to live a happy fulfilling life, while increasing our pain and discontent. Through the traditional Buddhist practice of the Four Limitless Ones, we can find a way to include ourselves in the circle of care, which has the power to change everything.  Join us for an evening exploration on the Four Limitless Ones, loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity.
