Deepening creative wise compassion through listening

Martine Batchelor

(Deze bijeenkomst is in het Engels.) Turning our attention to sounds develops our receptivity, which allows us to begin to cultivate a compassionate attitude. Showing compassion to ourselves helps take some of the unnecessary pressure off of our practice, and compassion toward others will help us bring the mindfulness we feel on the cushion into the world.

Martine Batchelor lived in Korea as a Seon nun under the guidance of Master Kusan for ten years. She is the author of “Meditation for Life, The Path of Compassion, Women in Korean Zen” and “Let Go: A Buddhist Guide to Breaking Free of Habits”. She is a member of the Gaia House Teacher Council. She teaches meditation retreats worldwide and lives in France.
