Metta is the Pali word for friendship or lovingkindness. It is taught as a meditation that cultivates our natural capacity for an open and loving heart. With its roots in practices said to have been taught by the Buddha himself, metta is traditionally offered along with meditations that enrich compassion, joy in the happiness of others and equanimity. These practices lead to the development of concentration, fearlessness, happiness and a greater ability to love.

This silent retreat is suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators.

An optional daily period of yoga will be offered by Tanya Diallo Welsh.

21 CE credits are available for psychologists, social workers and nurses. More information here.
