Alan Watts talks about the art of meditation and why it is important to practice it, especially in the civilized world. The development of compassion in the mind is protection against much of the suffering we experience in life, but compassion in modern times is sometimes misunderstood as a weak or passive state. This 8-week meditation course will follow the path of training the mind in compassion as presented by the Kadampa Lojong masters Geshe Langri Tangpa and Geshe Chekhawa. Each class consists of a guided breathing meditation, a talk on the topic of the day, and concludes with a meditation based on the topic.
Compassion helps us mend relationships and move forward while fostering emotional intelligence and well-being.
This exercise draws on a guided meditation created by researcher Emma Seppala, Science Director of Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education and author of The Happiness Track. We recommend listening to the audio of this guided meditation in the player above; you can also download it from Dr.


Now imagine that you are surrounded on all sides by all the people who love you and have loved you. Just as I wish to, may you be safe, may you be healthy, may you live with ease and happiness. Now think of an acquaintance, someone you don’t know very well and toward whom you do not have any particular feeling.

It could be a neighbor, or a colleague, or someone else that you see around but do not know very well.
