This weekend is suitable for newcomers and is an introduction to loving kindness (metta) as a way of being, as a meditation practice, and as part of a spiritual path. Metta is wishing well to ourselves, to others and to all beings and in a way that takes us beyond our usual limits and preferences.
The retreat is led by women who are ordained within the Triratna Buddhist Community and are experienced meditators and teachers. They may well have very different lifestyles and be different ages. They may be living in the spiritual community at Taraloka, working in the world or bringing up a family. However, they will look forward to sharing the vision and practice of metta with you and within the beauty of Taraloka and its landscape.
