Loving kindness and self-compassion

Non-residential retreat

Heart on fire

Metta is the virtue of friendliness or loving-kindness towards ourselves and others. In the Buddhist tradition a meditation practice is used to cultivate this quality. This practice has been part of the Buddhist tradition since the time of the Buddha who himself recommended the practice.

We often find it more difficult to develop metta toward ourselves so during the retreat, along with exploring and experiencing different ways of approaching the development of metta, we will be offering a sprinkling of self-compassion practices.
