Loving Friendliness: Metta Retreat

This metta retreat will provide the support needed to touch into the wordless depths of our own heart. There, we can experience its essential boundlessness and our capacity to love and embody kindness. Teachings and practices on compassion, joy in the happiness of others and equanimity will also be offered.

An optional period of mindful qigong will take place each day to deepen our ability to soften, relax and connect with our bodies.
