IDEAL FOR: All levels including beginners
We are all born with the capacity to act with compassion, but we often lack the insight and will to do so. In this inspiring and practical exploration of the art of loving-kindness Rabbi Rami shares the tools we need to realize the divinity of self and other, and to manifest godliness in our own lives. Drawing on the Thirteen Attributes of Loving-kindness articulated in the Book of Exodus and placing them in the context of inter-spirituality, we explore teachings and practices from many of the world's religions to cultivate compassion, grace, patience, and forgiveness.
Our goal in this workshop is to gain practical skills that allow us to practice loving kindness. Among the practices with which we will engage are metta (Buddhist practice for cultivating compassion), shmirat halashon (Jewish practice for cultivating right speech), mantra(Hindu practice for shifting from self to Self), kenosis (Christian practice for self-emptying), and dhikr (Muslim practice for awakening in, with, and as God).
