Morning Meditation Sit 2017.07.27
We sit this week looking toward Tisha B’Av –the 9th of the month of Av, which begins Monday night July 31 and goes through Tuesday August 1. This season reminds us again and again that hatred destroys everything it touches and we need to do all we can to not allow hatred to grow in our own hearts and minds.
This is a season to cultivate radical empathy, an absolute commitment to see the humanity in all, even in those with whom we deeply disagree.
And so we practice. We practice turning toward ourselves and each other with kindness, compassion and love. And we practice meeting each moment with curiosity and awe.
We will bring these intentions to our sit.
