The Four Immeasurables is a rich suite of practices that open the heart, counter the distortions in our relationships to ourselves, and deepen our relationships to others. Alan Wallace presents a unique interweaving of teachings on the "Four Immeasurables" (the cultivation of loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy, and equanimity) with instruction on quiescence, or shamatha, meditation practices to empower the mind. The book includes both guided meditations and lively discussions on the implications of these teachings for our own lives.
