A Beautiful Mind: A daylong on the Practice of Metta

Spring  Washam

Spring Washam, Senior Teacher

1/27/2018 10:00 AM 4:00 PM  at  Santa Monica Meditation Center, (1430 Olympic Blvd., Santa Monica, CA, 90404) (Map It)

The Buddha once said, “We can look the whole world over and find no one more deserving of our love and kindness then ourselves”. Our greatest and most challenging task on the spiritual path is to learn to love and accept ourselves. Self-hatred, aggression and self-criticism are rooted in a mind that is confused and suffering. Metta is a mindfulness practice that protects the mind from falling into habitual patterns of reactivity that undermine our deepest intentions to be happy. 

Loving-kindness represents the most beautiful and benevolent aspects of our human nature. The boundless states of loving-kindness manifest as a force of purification and can transform the heart into a refuge of calm, focused awareness. In this daylong we will practice cultivating Metta while grounding it in the practice of insight meditation.
