Refund and Event Policies

We are in a time of elevated stress as the sheltering in place continues. The already polarized culture is experiencing heightened tensions building around an upcoming election. There is a lot of dismay in the atmosphere. How is your capacity for kindness? How is your capacity for appreciative joy? Compassion? Acceptance/Equanimity? These qualities of the heart can be in short supply these days. This is why Buddha referred to them as trainings. We need to consciously cultivate these qualities for ourselves, loved ones, and the communities at large.

Metta is a popular meditation where practitioners cultivate Loving Kindness, Goodwill.

It is an early Buddhist meditation practice that is often taught as a “stand-alone practice” where practitioners cultivate the ‘divine abodes’. Metta practice also is presently enjoying a spotlight as a tool in positive psychology to balance out clinical applications of Mindfulness. In this series, we will expand on the Metta practice by looking at how it is applied in the Suttas. Then we will examine practical approaches of its application toward other classical Buddhist meditations of Samatha, Vipassana, and Jhana thereby creating a well-rounded training of our own capacity to increase kindness, compassion, appreciation, and equanimity in our lives.

Class Format:

  • 7:30-8:15pm Dharma Talk
