Tender is the Heart
Alistair is back in Scarborough to teach a weekend course exploring the Buddhist practices around 'awakening the heart'. Traditionally these "bodhicitta" practices can be a little head-based and Alistair approaches them in a more somatic way, using the body as the gateway to interpersonal relationships. Taking a good look at how we really feel in our bodies when we think about ourselves and those around us and working with the strong gamut of emotions that arise in an embodied way. We'll be re-visiting classic practices like the "metta-bhavana" and "tonglen" in a new way.
The course is open to all levels, beginners and those wishing to approach these teachings from a fresh angle.
We begin at 10am and finish at 5pm on Saturday and 4pm on Sunday.
