About this Event

In our unique hands-on workshop, we'll interactively explore Buddhism's Four Immeasurables—Love, Compassion, Joy, and Equanimity.

Utilizing creative modalities such as poetry writing and art therapy, we seek to nurture these teachings' inner realizations in an engaging, interactive manner. We start with Love, or Metta, encouraging each participant to pen down poetry or a letter to oneself exploring their understanding of unconditional love towards all beings.

This exercise aims not only to generate affectionate care for others but also to foster a healthy relationship with one's self. Next, we delve into Compassion, known as Karuna, using art therapy. Participants will have the opportunity to express their comprehension and interpretation of compassion through various art forms. Creative expression often uncovers deep-seated emotions, fostering a more profound sense of empathy towards oneself and others.

Then comes Joy, or Mudita. Through fun-filled activities, thoughtful discussions and shared laughter, we aim to cultivate genuine joy that arises from delighting in other's happiness. Celebrating collective victories, no matter how small, will lead the way.

Lastly, we explore Equanimity (Upekkha) via mindfulness practices and group sharing. Helping participants to develop a calm mind, balanced under all circumstances – be it pleasure or pain, victory or defeat. The workshop focuses significantly on presenting an inclusive, welcoming environment for the LGBTQ+ community.

Through this safe space, participants can freely express themselves, emboldening them to embrace their identities wholeheartedly and truly immerse in the journey towards fostering the ethos of the Four Immeasurables. So, join us as we wade through an enlightening path that combines creativity, camaraderie and the timeless wisdom of Buddhism.

As we move through the workshop, we attempt to ingrain these fundamental Buddhist principles into our everyday encounters. This hands-on approach to the Four Immeasurables imparts meaningful and enduring skills necessary to manage challenges and enhance overall well-being effectively.
