What are the benefits of generating a kind heart? What does that mean? In this weekend retreat, we will look at the benefits of generating an attitude of kindness and the obstacles to doing so. By understanding the mental patterns that get in the way of kindness, we can learn how to develop more useful attitudes that lead to happiness for self and others.
Start out this year cultivating a kind heart with guided meditations and discussions led by Karuna Cayton and Venerable Drimay.
Karuna will give presentations and Ven. Drimay will lead mediations and discussions.

Presently, he is the director of The Karuna Group, a coaching and counseling project.
Venerable Losang Drimay has been studying, practicing and working with centers in the FPMT since 1984, receiving hundreds of hours of classroom instruction from the many qualified lamas and senior teachers that frequent our Dharma centers.
