During this daylong online retreat, we'll dive into the practice of Metta, or loving-kindness, as taught in the Visuddhimagga. Using phrases, images and felt sense, we'll cultivate the unconditional heart that wishes goodness for ourselves, others, and even those most difficult to love. In developing the natural kindness of the heart, we can trust that we're building the skills to wisely respond to our own challenges, as well as our collective challenges of these times.

Open for beginning and seasoned meditators alike. All are welcome. This retreat will include dharma teachings,  meditation instructions for both sitting and walking, and time for questions.

This program will be recorded and made available for on-demand viewing after the live sessions. On-demand videos will be available to registered participants for 90 days.
