Copper Beech Institute – LOVINGKINDNESS – Weekend Retreat

June 9, 2017 - June 11, 2017

Join Sharon for a weekend retreat at the Copper Beech Institute exploring Lovkindness practice. 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 be 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. His Holiness the Dalai Lama has stated, “My true religion is kindness.”

Although frequently denigrated in our culture as simplistic and weak, the quality of kindness has an inherent power to transform our worldview from one of fear and isolation to one rooted in clarity, courage, and compassion. The practice of lovingkindness meditation brings to life our innate capacity for connecting to ourselves and others. Through talks, guided meditations, writing exercises, and questions and answers, Sharon Salzberg explores the relevance of right intention, right speech, and right action in cultivating kindness in our hearts and minds. This retreat will also include a Saturday Night on Retreat Performance with Kate Callahan.
