The Sacred Art of Lovingkindness

About This Event

IDEAL FOR: All levels including beginners

We are all born with the capacity to act with compassion, but we often lack the insight and will to do so. In this inspiring and practical exploration of the art of loving–kindness Rabbi Rami shares the tools we need to realize the divinity of self and other, and to manifest godliness in our own lives. Drawing on the Thirteen Attributes of Loving–kindness articulated in the Book of Exodus and placing them in the context of inter–spirituality, we explore teachings and practices from many of the world’s religions to cultivate compassion, grace, patience, and forgiveness.

Our goal in this workshop is to gain practical skills that allow us to practice loving kindness. Among the practices with which we will engage are metta (Buddhist practice for cultivating compassion), shmirat halashon (Jewish practice for cultivating right speech), mantra (Hindu practice for shifting from self to Self), kenosis (Christian practice for self–emptying), and dhikr (Muslim practice for awakening in, with, and as God).

Tuition is $250 plus accommodations.

Accommodation options:

Commuter – $75

Private Room, Hall Bath – $225

      Living Fully with Fear

    The Living Fully with Fear course with Amanda Votto was an incredible experience. I was able to connect with my emotions, dig deep and find what was underneath those emotions, and find comfort within myself and from the shared experiences of the others in the class. I found the practices to be extremely helpful and at times challenging (in a good way). And overall, Amanda did a great job of putting everything into context and explaining how we can relate to fear and tap into a more compassionate part of ourselves. I do wish it had been longer than four weeks. It was a lot of material to cover, and there was a lot to explore and work through. Perhaps Copper Beech might consider extending these online courses to be six or eight week experiences. Even so, I am truly grateful for the opportunity and for all that I gained from this class. Thank you to Amanda and to Copper Beech!

      Harvest Celebration 2018

    As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

      A Magical Place

    The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!
