Ven Amy Miller: Choosing Kindness

Ven Amy Miller
Choosing Kindness: Empathy, Emptiness, and Empowerment in Challenging Times
Tuesday 6 June
7 - 8.30 pm
Suggested donation £7


In our daily lives, we are often bombarded by external experiences that show cruelty and heartlessness. We are influenced by these situations and begin to believe that in order to be happy we need to follow a particular behaviour, obtain an array of material items and/or attain a certain status.

Little by little, our kind heart becomes obscured by shields; the natural authentic dynamic flow of who we really are gets blocked and twisted and instead manifests as something more constrictive, negative, hostile or fearful. So we escape, blame or numb ourselves to what is really happening. Then the ruminating mind takes over deepening a false veil on our perceptions. This is the perfect time for practice!

How can we use our vulnerability to generate a strong wish to emerge from our confusion and separation and spark a deep experience of compassion for others? In this evening, Ven. Amy Miller will walk us through a path of fully waking up and being present with our pain, fear, aversion and how moving through these less than comfortable mind states is the key to transformation.

We welcome back our long standing friend Venerable Amy Miller for another uplifting inspiring and grounded talk on living the dharma in our daily lives.
