The Brahmavihārās, known as the four immeasurable or heavenly abodes, are both Buddhist virtues and meditation practices. The Brahmavihārās are cultivated as part of the heart-based practices in the Theravada tradition. They are known as heavenly abodes because they are a space of refuge that supports us in keeping love in all our social interactions, regardless of how difficult it may be. As ministers, people often engage us when they are growing through some of the most painful and challenging aspects of their lives. This course is designed to support the new and the seasoned in orienting into the Brahmavihārā as a means for ministerial engagement or chaplaincy.
This course is one in a series of courses offered as part of Thich Nhat Hanh Program for Engaged Buddhism.
