Finding Our Balance: Lessons on the 4 Immeasurables

With Rosalyn White

June 10 - July 1, 2020
The Buddha taught that the path to overcome suffering begins with developing an open heart. He identified four qualities that help with this: loving-kindness, compassion, joyfulness, and equanimity. These are known as the Four Immeasurables because each quality is boundless and limitless in nature. By practicing these qualities, we begin to bring great benefits and peace to ourselves and others.
