Young Buddhists: Sub35s Awakening the Heart - Brahma Viharas

Date:Friday 25th May 2018
Time:7.30 - 9.30pm
Cost:Free, but donations welcome
Led by:Hannah and Laura
Description:The Young Buddhists' Sub 35s night at the Cambridge Buddhist Centre is an alternative Friday night for people in their teens, 20s and 30s. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
In this series we will be looking at the brahma viharas. These are four positive emotions that the Buddha encouraged us to dwell in. They are loving kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity. The cultivation of these states allows us to relate to any situation or person both positively and wisely. It is suggested in the ancient scriptures that the way to Enlightenment involves the cultivation of these emotions at every step.

Each of the brahma viharas has it’s own meditation practice and so, as well as exploring what the brahma viharas are, we will also be practicing the meditations on each.

On this evening Hannah and Laura will be exploring what sympathetic joy is and how we can cultivate it.
