Loving Kindness Weekend Meditation Retreat

Friday, April 20, 2018 - 5:00 pm to Sunday, April 22, 2018 - 2:00 pm
The source of loving kindness and compassion rests within each and every one of us.
This retreat is an exploration into the Buddha's teachings for the Heart. It is an invitation to relax deeply from the confines of the thinking mind, and soften into the quiet wisdom of the tender heart. 
This is a silent meditation retreat with the emphasize on seated meditation, there will be teachings and guided meditations on Loving Kindness and Compassion (tonglen) during some of the meditation sessions. Although the schedule is more relaxed then our other silent meditation retreats it is not recommended for complete beginners, but those who would like to deepen and expand their meditation practice. A great first retreat for those new to retreat practice.
There will be sessions of mindful movement throughout the retreat, please bring a yoga mat if you have one.
Opportunities to meet with the retreat leaders in group interview will be available.
