Few books serve to so simply and yet deeply introduce students to the tenets and practices of the Four Immeasurables of Buddhism - loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy, and equanimity - as Pema Chodron’s The Places That Scare You  and Thich Nhat Hahn’s At Home in the World.  In addition to analyzing the two books, the purpose of this course is to provide both a conceptual and experiential framework to allow participants to move forward in understanding and implementing these contemplative and meditative teachings and practices into daily life.  If we acknowledge the love, compassion, joy and equanimity that we can feel now and nurture it through these practices, the expansion of those qualities will happen naturally by itself.
