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, along with the practices of compassion, joy and equanimity. Metta practice leads to greater acceptance of ourselves and others, revealing our fundamental connectedness to all life.
The schedule will include regular periods of yoga practice, as we find this is a helpful complement to the lovingkindness meditation.
Spirit Rock extends a special invitation to young adults (age 18-26) who wish to attend this retreat at a rate of $25 per night, on a first come, first serve basis. A limited number of special rates are available, please apply early.
