Location: 227 West 13th Street

Organization: Integral Yoga Center

Speaker: Sumati Karen Bates

Cost: Donation

Springtime’s yearly reappearance is symbolic of new beginnings in nature. After a cold, dark winter, trees grow bright green new leaves as winter’s drab, cold days surrender without human intervention to longer, sunny ones. We are all a part of nature. In this Satsang, we will discuss whether there is a similar automatic process of “new beginnings” that goes on inside each of us, a process beyond our conscious control or will, and how and when it occurs. May be attended on a drop-in basis with no preregistration.

What does the new scientific research have to say about self-compassion as opposed to self-criticism? This lecture will discuss self-compassion as it is taught in the Stanford Medical School Compassion Curriculum and present ways to develop the skill of self-compassion.
