a 4-week course

Foundations of Heartfulness

Imagine our world filled with more Heartfulness; loving-kindness, compassion, appreciative joy, and peace. Now, imagine these qualities being natural expressions of your heart and mind.

Traditionally, the above four qualities of Heartfulness are referred to as The Four Immeasurables, because they are immeasurably beneficial to the welfare of our world and ourselves. They are also called the The Four Heavenly Abodes, because they can become our natural disposition or home.

Modern science recognizes how Heartfulness profoundly benefits mental health and emotional well-being. Traditionally, Heartfulness Practice is an essential attitude of mindful living.

This 4-week course is an in-depth exploration and realization of Heartfulness through traditional teachings and authentic meditation practices.

What to Expect:

Each week, we will focus on one of the four qualities of Heartfulness. Each class is supported with home contemplations and formal meditations.

You will learn:

  • How each of the four aspects of Hearfulness work together to benefit yourself and others.
  • How to establish a skillful meditation practice for developing each of the four qualities of Heartfulness.
  • How to overcome obstacles that hinder the development of Heartfulness.
  • How to meet the joys and challenges of everyday life with Mindful Heartfulness.
Course Outline:
  • Week 1: Loving-Kindness
  • Week 2: Compassion
  • Week 3: Appreciative Joy
  • Week 4: Equanimity/Peace

This course is open to anyone who wishes to cultivate a heart-mind inclined toward loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and peace.
