The second stage of metta

Tonight Mary Anna will explore the second stage of the metta practice; metta for a good friend. This stage is a transition stage, where we take our focus off ourselves and our own well being and begin to cultivate awareness of others, and awareness of their happiness and well being. Mary Anna will talk about the importance and necessity of celebrating the qualities of our good friends, as well as how this positive experience of others paves the way to feelings of open hearted connectedness with all.

In this series we will:

  • discuss what metta is
  • explore different ways to open our hearts to cultivate positive emotion
  • look at the role of body awareness, imagination and loving-kindness as way of being
  • explore our own experience with developing friendliness in our lives and the effect this has had on our well-being and those who come into contact with us

Wednesday nights are a place for people who have attended our foundation courses to come together and celebrate community as well as an opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the Buddha's teaching.
