“Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings”
from the Karaniya Metta Sutta
On this introductory meditation workshop we will explore the Buddha’s teaching of kindness or metta, generally as a living principle, and more specifically as a meditation practice. Participants will learn the Metta Bhavana, or Cultivation of Loving-Kindness practice, a meditation that has been practiced for thousands of years. We will explore the core Buddhist ethical principle of non-harm and its practical application in daily life, drawing out the rewards and challenges of a life lived with empathy and kindness.
Participants will learn everything they need to begin a regular and effective meditation practice. A vegetarian lunch is provided and included in the cost. Suitable for complete beginners, or those looking for a refresher.
