100 Days of Lovingkindness begins Jan 31

man and woman diving of boatThe second event of our Year of Going Deeper series — 100 Days of Lovingkindness — begins on January 31, 2014.

This is not a meditation challenge requiring you do lovingkindness practice every day. It’s simply an opportunity, over the course of a 100 day period, to bring more lovingkindness into your life.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Appreciate that kindness is something that’s inherent in your being, and that it just needs to be nurtured
  • Be kinder to yourself
  • Be less irritated and more patient with others
  • Develop acceptance instead of making judgments
  • Develop genuine compassion
  • Avoid “idiot compassion” (where we deny our own needs in the service of others)
  • Become more appreciative and see the best in others
  • Stay balanced while dealing with difficulties in life

Over the 100 days you’ll receive a daily practice reminder, with links to guided meditations and other resources.

There is also an online community, on Google Plus, where you can ask questions, share your experience, and get support and encouragement. Joining the community is easy if you have Google account (e.g. if you have a GMail account) and it’s still easy even if you don’t! We’ll send you details of how to join the community after you register.

Participation in 100 Days of Lovingkindness is free, although we do appreciate donations. In fact we need donations to cover our running costs.

I am the Business Manager at Wildmind.org. I've been through a 12-step recovery program and my life has changed dramatically thanks to all the help I've received. So I find that I love nothing better than helping people in return. A few months ago I discovered meditation, and it's become a crucial part of my life. Now I want to share that too! When I saw that Wildmind was in need of help, I immediately reached out and made myself available to help them in their mission to change the world by spreading mindfulness and compassion.

I just “happened upon” the Wildmind website– 2 days before the next 100 days of LovingKindness begins. Hmmmm. What a coincidence.

When the student is ready, a teacher appears!
