July Metta Retreat

Metta is the Pali term for friendship, goodwill or loving-kindness. In this retreat we will develop metta as a meditation practice which cultivates our natural capacity for an open and loving heart, towards ourselves and all other beings. We will also develop the practices of compassion, joy and equanimity. Metta practice leads to greater acceptance of ourselves and others, revealing our fundamental connectedness to all life.

In developing Loving-Kindness we need to draw upon other beautiful qualities of heart such as Patience, Courage, Faith and Renunciation. With these and other supports, Loving-Kindness deepens to become powerful and boundless.
