The ultimate true nature of mind is the union of wisdom and compassion. However, many of the practices we engage in on the path focus primarily on either wisdom or compassion. In this weekend teaching, Mitra Tyler Dewar demonstrates that wisdom and compassion are simultaneously present throughout our journey and even right from the very beginning. The heart of renunciation, the desire for freedom that propels us on the path is based on wisdom: the wisdom of recognizing that causes of suffering together with the wisdom that sees the possibility of freedom. Simultaneously, this heart of renunciation is the genuine expression of compassion for oneself and the starting point for compassion for others. And this is just the beginning. Throughout this experiential weekend teaching Mitra Tyler led the group through practices designed to explore the relationship between compassion and analytical mediation. These practices make it clear that engaging in analytical meditation to encourage the sharpness of our questioning mind and engaging in compassion meditation to encourage the warmth and openness of our heart complement each other. Mitra Tyler entertained questions and used analogies, examples, and humor to make these teachings relevant for our lives today in the 21st century. Four talks on four DVDs.
