In-person Course 4 Tuesday evenings, Oct 18 to Nov 8, 7pm to 8:45pm
Even as a mother at the risk of her life, watches over and protects her only child, so with a boundless heart let one cherish all living beings. (From the Metta Sutta)
The metta bhavana, or cultivation of loving kindness, is a powerful meditation practice that teaches us how to bring a friendly, kind, curious attention to ourselves and to other people, and to whatever arises in our experience, softening harsh self-criticism and judgment and bringing a sense of ease and openness to our participation in the world.
In this 4-week online workshop we'll explore different ways to do the practice so that everyone has what they need to continue effectively at home. The course is friendly, practical and easy to follow. There are led meditations each evening with plenty of time for questions and sharing our discoveries in a safe and welcoming space.
Suitable for complete beginners to meditation as well as anyone wishing to refresh their practice.
Since this class is in person we have safety requirements - please check them here. However, as things stand, we plan to make masks optional, at least at least while meditating.
