Metta is the Pali term for friendship or lovingkindness. In this retreat we will develop metta as a meditation practice which cultivates our natural capacity for an open and loving heart for all of life. We will also develop the beautiful and profound practices of compassion, joy and equanimity and learn how to bring those qualities to meet every moment of our life. Metta practice leads to greater acceptance of ourselves and others, revealing our fundamental connectedness to all life.
The schedule will include daily periods of yoga practice to support a loving attitude to the body, as well as guided meditations and Dharma talks on the themes of the heart qualities.
