Loving Kindness One Day Retreat

This course is ONSITE 

Workshop Description:

“I am larger, better than I thought; I did not know I held so much goodness”. Walt Whitman

In this very special one day retreat, we will spend the day practising Loving Kindness – truly a radical act of love. The practice of Metta or Loving Kindness is an ancient Heart Meditation that focuses on giving and receiving love, an act of deep healing of ourselves and others.
We live in an increasingly divided world where we are pulled into constant polarization – making all those who disagree with us ‘other’. This beautiful practice reverses this process and allows us to see that on a basic human level, we are all the same. All beings wish to be happy and live with peace and ease in their lives. In this day of Metta, we will extend our well wishing far and wide – to people close to our hearts and to our fellow beings across the globe. As we open our heart to the world, we find that we benefit enormously as we feel more connected to ourselves and each other and this beautiful planet we share. We connect with and fire up the essential goodness that is in all of us.

May we be happy
May we be healthy
May we ride the waves of our lives
May we live in peace
No matter what we are given


Day & Date: Saturday 20th May
