with Jil Amadio
March 28 / 10:00 AM - March 28 / 11:30 AM

Join me - Shastri Jil Amadio - for a morning of meditation and dharma study, designed to give us a chance to rest our mind, de-escalate stress and strengthen our immune response.


This week we will focus on the compassion practice called Tonglen, this practices helps us feel less anxious, physically healthier and more capable to help in times of crisis.   It can be used as a formal practice or on the spot, whenever suffering arises.
