Meditation is a practice where an individual uses a technique – such as mindfulness, or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought, or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state.

Guided imagery is a mind-body intervention by which a trained practitioner helps a participant evoke and generate mental images that simulate or re-create pleasant sensory perceptions. Doing so calms the body and mind and helps the participant cope better with stress. We regularly practice guided imagery meditation at TARSHI.

Circle of Compassion: Meditations for Caring for the Self and the World

This four-week journey of meditations is for anyone who longs to put their compassion into action, to make compassion real in everyday ways. It’s for those who want to balance caring for self and caring for the world, because they recognize that the health of the human psyche and the health of the world are inextricably related, and we cannot truly heal one without healing the other. And it’s for those who understand that to deepen in compassion we need to open our hearts and face the suffering inside ourselves and in the world around us, because when we face suffering with an open heart, we find momentary pain but we also find the doorway to lasting fulfillment and freedom.
