Full Moon Loving Kindness Practice and Ceremony for Ethical Living

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.
