Sliding Scale: $75 – 200. Code KG2D18.
Lovingkindness is sometimes depicted as a simple “open your heart and love everybody” practice, but a closer look at the Buddha’s teachings reveals a more complex and nuanced picture. In a time of great conflict and contention in our society, it can be extremely valuable to look at these nuances.
The Buddha’s teachings on lovingkindness emphasize the importance of sila, or ethical behavior, the potential for opening into deeper meditative states of peace and equanimity, and the importance of developing non-discriminating, unconditional love on the path of awakening.
The retreat will include meditation, lecture, small group discussion, and Q&A.
Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
