Newsletter Winter 2017

This February, Chas DiCapua and Rebecca Bradshaw are leading a seven-day retreat called “Insight-full of the Heart.” During this time, we aim to cultivate both the heart practice (loving-kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity) and our insight practice in order to deepen and enliven our practice as a whole.

You can find more about retreat as well as an article on heart practices by Rebecca and other TCVC news on our Winter 2017 Newsletter below.
