I really like Metta but I'm frustrated when I can't do it in real life.

I know Metta, but I just forget to do it - or I get carried away with other things instead of Metta.

A Metta workshop
(with some meditation)

People are often frustrated taking their meditation practice "off the cushion". Feeling serene and kind by oneself is different than interacting with friends, family and peers with Metta. 

Come to this workshop and learn how to bridge your silent meditation practice with everyday relationships.

This day long workshop will blend meditation with interactive exercises so you'll have your own sense of what you need to take your meditation practice into everyday life.

Jeanne Corrigal and James Lowe will be co-facilitating this day long, offering you a variety of practice perspectives.

Workshop details
  • Reconnect to Metta during the day

  • Leave with a clear personal definition of Metta

  • Know what conditions and circumstances supports your Metta practice at home, work or school.

 

  • Have clear ideas about what you will do differently in order to sustain your Metta for others.

  • This is a small intimate class limited to 20 people only.

What'll happen
  • Get to meet other people who meditate like you.

  • Review Metta techniques and sit together.

  • In small groups, discuss practice with teachers.

  • List what you need to take practice into everyday life.

Who's this for
  • You know what Metta or Lovingkindness is.

  • You've done a lovingkindness meditation at least once before.

  • You've tried meditating on your own.

  • Meditators who want to have fun and talk about their practice with like minded people.
