Lovingkindness Retreat

Metta is the Pali word for friendship or lovingkindness. It is taught as a meditation that cultivates our natural capacity for an open and loving heart. With its roots in practices said to have been taught by the Buddha himself, Metta is traditionally offered along with meditations that enrich compassion, joy in the happiness of others, and equanimity. These practices lead to the development of concentration, fearlessness, happiness, and a greater ability to love.

The courage to investigate the pain of how we cause harm to ourselves, and others, is critical preparation for forgiveness as a way of skillful living.
