Event Details

Cost: Sliding Scale $40 – 100. Code JN1D18.

This LGBTQI Community retreat will be spent cultivating love and loving-kindness (Metta). The practice of loving-kindness was taught by the Buddha to cultivate the natural beautiful qualities of an open and loving heart. The practice begins with ourselves and expands outward for all beings. The cultivation of loving kindness supports a caring and balanced heart that is able to open to all the joys and difficulties of life.

In this day together, there will be instructions and teachings to develop this practice and to work with the challenges that may block the full expression of the heart.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
