Training six reminds us that we don’t seek to defeat, humiliate, or punish our enemies. Instead, we seek to befriend and heal them that we may be reconciled and live together with peace and justice for all.
Learn how to recognize the inherent worth and value of all life and treat both friend and foe with courtesy, dignity, and respect. We investigate the old saying: "the suffering masses reject what they see and believe what they think, while wise people reject what they think and believe what they see." Using a smart phone camera, we explore relating to our world non-conceptually and explain how this view allows our unconditional love to flourish.
In the previous class we concluded that the key to happiness is offering unconditional love to all people, beings, and life forms. But given the various and conflicting definitions of love in our culture, this talk clarifies what we mean by “love” and explains why it is a powerful and effective force for creating social change.
Learn how to cultivate, grow, and embody kindness. Learn what kindness is, how it feels in the body, and how it is expressed in our thoughts. Learn how cultivating kindness transforms hatred and fear into love. Greed and worry try to masquerade as kindness, but we show you how to tell them apart. Learn all this and more!
What is love? How does it relate to truth? What are the four ways that love shows up in our lives? How can love be intrinsic to who we are and boundless in its scope, when we so rarely experience our inner love? How do we work with love to benefit our lives and free ourselves from our suffering? Learn all this and more.
