The Heart of Compassion~ Looking Towards, Finding Ease ~ An evening with Scott Tusa

“If your everyday practice is to open to all your emotions, to all the people you meet, to all the situations you encounter without closing down, trusting that you can do that – then that will take you as far as you can go. And then you’ll understand all the teachings that anyone has ever taught.” ~Pema Chodron

“Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.” ~Soren Kierkegaard


Life doesn't always go the way we want. Rather than bypassing its challenges when they come up, meditation offers us an opportunity to look towards in order to find true contentment. Contentment does not come from ignoring suffering, but rather happens when we are able to meet and be curious about our fuller human experience.

Eventually the kindness and space we can provide towards our own suffering becomes the kindness and compassion we can express towards others. In this evening talk, and through periods of meditation, experiential learning, and discussion, we will explore how to meet life’s challenges with more awareness, compassion, and ease.
