The ancient and traditional Buddhist meditation practice of “taking and giving” is one of the most powerful methods for opening our hearts and overcoming the exaggerated self-concern that disturbs our minds day and night. Taking and giving is also especially effective in helping us develop very subtle, refined states of concentration. In this practice, we learn to combine our love and compassion with our breath, so that as we breathe, we also deepen our ability to cherish and care for others. In this workshop, you can learn how to engage in this special practice, and there will be a focus on engaging in the meditation together.
