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, open to both new and experienced meditators, will include instructions for sitting and walking meditation practice, Q&A, talks about the teachings and meetings with the teachers. An optional daily period of mindful movement will be offered by trainee teacher Devon Hase. All are welcome!
