Room: Decatur

This is a free, one hour talk planned the evening of Wednesday May 19th, following 7pm public sitting.

So often when the practice of the Four Immeasurables is taught, the majority of the focus is placed on the first two, loving-kindness and compassion. Joy and equanimity usually get a little short-changed. 

In this talk, Tim Olmsted will focus on Joy - sharing just how easy, immediate, intuitive, and satisfying this beautiful practice can be. It’s just a shift in our attitude; a tilt of the head. 

Tim says that for him, if there was just one practice he could share, of all the meditation practices he has received over his lifetime, it would be this practice of joy.  

So come and join us via Zoom the evening of Wednesday, May 19 and share some of Tim’s joy!
