As you awaken your heart, you can move loving kindness into situations and relationships in your everyday life. Gain new perspectives as you pay keen attention to yourself and others with heightened awareness. When you shift and access speaking, listening, and caring for others in a new found way, kindness grows. The fruits of greater kindness are revealed in your mind, life, and community. Nurture these qualities through direct instruction and guided meditations using classical techniques in a modern idiom. There will be ample opportunity for discussion, questions, and practice of loving kindness teachings to support your own experience. Go deep into the practice and:
- Feel tension and stress melt off of you as you practice loving kindness.
- Cultivate loving kindness and feel an expansion in your heart as never before.
- Experience inner peace and calm and a sense of renewal using loving kindness meditations.
This retreat is for both new and experienced meditators. Bring a cushion if you would like to sit on the floor. Chairs are provided. The Saturday night program will be questions and answers and time for loving kindness meditation.
