In this afternoon session, Alan Wallace teaches a guided meditation of loving-kindness, beginning first with one’s self, then moving outwards to others. He reminds us that loving-kindness is not an emotion, but rather the aspiration for others to have happiness and the causes of happiness. This is followed by question and answer. Alan answers the questions, “From a Buddhist perspective, what is the effect of the use of hallucinogenic drugs during the teenage years, can it harm the mind, and can meditation help heal the mind, and if so, how?” and, “How does one cultivate joyful effort, especially during mundane tasks?”
