For the monthly tonglen (compassion practice) meditation, we will be discussing the daunting challenge of working with self loathing and how we can build a sense of self love and compassion towards ourselves. As we move towards a more positive and open-hearted view we may be surprised to find that the way we see others, and even the world at large, begins to relax into a more fluid and transparent state in our mind's eye. This new view is more spacious and freeing, and can lead to a more insightful mode of existing.
OFFICIAL LOCATION: This group meets in the Seay Psychology Building courtyard, weather permitting. The backup location is at the bottom.
UT Meditate strives to provide meditation instruction to young people and all others as well as create a community interested in exploring their own minds. This is a secular group; all religious backgrounds or lack thereof are welcome!
Being a UT student is NOT required. This is not an official UT group, just one that is run by a UT student.
SCHEDULE: The meetings include a guided meditation starting at 5:40, followed by a silent meditation. We will then break before Q&A on the meditation technique and will follow that with a discussion topic of the week.
If the weather is too harsh, the room where we will meet is RLM 9.222. That is in Robert Lee Moore Hall on the ninth floor. Do not take the escalators. Take the elevators. There is a sign that points to the room as you exit the elevator.
PARKING- Unless you have a UT parking pass, you will have to pay at a meter for parking
