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.
This silent retreat, open to all, will include an optional daily period of yoga offered by Leslie Booker.
CE credits are available for Psychologists and Licensed Mental Health Counselors. An additional fee of $50 will be payable at the end of your retreat when you receive your certificate.
