The Four Boundless Qualities: Love, Compassion, Joy, and Equanimity
Welcome to Stephan Pende Wormland’s weekend teaching about the Four Boundless Qualities (Brahmavihara). Loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy, and equanimity are qualities that we all possess. We just have to get in touch with this beautiful potential within our hearts and minds so that these essential qualities for leading a meaningful, joyful, and content life will become a part of our daily existence.
During the weekend teaching, we will explore methods of nurturing and cultivating the Four Boundless Qualities within us through lectures, discussions and guided meditations. The course is open for everyone, regardless of your background or previous experience.
