We will be reading and discussing the book, A Fearless Heart: How the Courage to Be Compassionate Can Transform Our Lives. By Thupten Jinpa Phd. “ Based on the revolutionary course in Compassion Cultivation Training at Stanford that Jinpa helped to create, A Fearless Heart shows us that compassion can be a path through suffering, a key to robust health, and even an effective way to reach our goals..Pulling from the latest Western research as well as traditional Buddhist psychology, Jinpa offers simple daily practices that will help readers train their compassion muscle for a greater meaning, connection, and fulfillment.” We will study and discuss how compassion meditation can lead to happiness . Amazon review. Join us in learning more about compassion meditation. We read and discuss one chapter/week using a discussion guide. Reading and participation are required.
