Metta: A Kindly Abiding
'Metta is the synthesis of reason and emotion, right view and skilful action; unobstructed spiritual vision and the bliss of a warm and expansive heart.' (Sangharakshita)
Love (metta) underpins the whole of Buddhist practice. Like a jewel it has many facets: patience, intimacy, interest and kindness. All of these facets are ways in which we come into relationship with ourselves and others. All are ways to live at peace in this fleeting and fragile world.
Whether you are new to the practice of metta, or wanting to go deeper, come and join us for this long weekend retreat exploring how to work with our hearts and allow them to open into universal loving-kindness. The retreat will include meditation, ritual, chanting and some silence. There will also be space for walks, reflection and time in nature.
