Full Moon Loving Kindness Meditation Practice

Sunday, October 13, 2019 - 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm
Metta (Loving-kindness) meditation is an antidote to fear and anxiety, and a complement to the cool clarity of wisdom. Because we and the whole world need loving-kindness, we do metta meditation together on nights when there is a full moon.

All are welcome: this practice is suitable for any level meditation experience, including beginners. It is a wonderful addition to any faith or life-affirming tradition.

The evening will includes guided Loving-kindness meditation, walking meditation, and silent sitting. We finish the evening by chanting the Metta Sutta, which are the Buddha's instructions on Loving-kindness. The chant is on page 46 of the Chant Book.

Newcomers are especially welcome. Loving-kindness meditation is a wonderful way to begin a meditation practice.

Afterward tea and cookies are offered.
