The Art of Compassion

Fred LuskinSunday, April 29, 2018
6:00 –8:00 pm

We are delighted to welcome Fred back for another talk at the Yoga Center.

Compassion comes from the recognition that all of us are vulnerable. Dr. Fred Luskin emphasizes letting go of hurt, helplessness and anger while increasing confidence, hope and happiness. Through these powerful techniques individuals can learn how to release unwanted hurts and grudges and open themselves to happiness, peace and love.

The Greater Good Science Center studies the psychology, sociology, and neuroscience of wellbeing and teaches skills that foster a thriving, resilient and compassionate community.

The evening begins with 30 minutes of silent meditation, followed by 15 minutes of chanting. Stay after for a hearty vegetarian soup after the program.
