About the Teaching
The cultivation of loving-kindness (Sanskrit: maitri; Pali: metta) allows us to contact our natural source of genuine love and concern for self and others. By facilitating this quality of the heart to arise and manifest in ourselves and in our relationship with others, we are creating the conditions for a happiness that is not dependent on holding onto people and things in our lives and resisting change. In spite of impermanence and uncertainty, we can have the confidence of living and acting from such a wholesome state of mind. In this workshop we will meditate on the ways to awaken our loving-kindness and to spread it around.
This workshop features several sessions of guided meditations with explanations and time for Q&A or discussion. All are welcome; no prerequisite needed.
