For self-identified women
Metta (Loving-Kindness) Meditation is a complementary practice to Vipassana (Mindfulness) Meditation. It is a formal practice originally taught by the Buddha as an antidote to fear. When we practice Metta we awaken to our own intrinsic wholeness, peacefulness and kindness and we provide an opportunity to deepen our equanimity. There will be specific instruction in Metta and in walking meditation, mindful movement and a dharma talk each day, group interviews and opportunities for discussion with the teacher. This silent retreat is suitable for beginning and experienced students of meditation.
