All are welcome to our monthly Full Moon Loving Kindness Practice and Ceremony for Ethical Living.
To support loving kindness (Metta) practice around the world, we will meditate together on nights when there is a full moon.
Metta meditation is an antidote to fear and anxiety, and a complement to the cool clarity of wisdom. The Ceremony of Ethical Living is an opportunity to own and forgive our mistakes of the past, and reaffirm our intentions to live in harmony with our deepest truth.
Our evening will begin with the Ceremony of Ethical Living at 7:00 p.m. to settle our past unskillful actions. After the ceremony (at about 7:30 p.m.) we'll have a guided period of Metta meditation followed by walking meditation and a period of silent Metta. We'll finish the evening by chanting the Metta Sutta, which are the Buddha's instructions on Metta.
We will still have "tea time" after meditation.
