This silent weekend course, open to all, is an opportunity to explore the Buddha's teachings on liberation, with an emphasis on the practice of metta, or lovingkindness. Through learning to connect with our mind/heart/body process with interest and acceptance, we touch into the wordless depths of our own heart, and develop greater understanding and compassion. In this way, we increase our ability to meet life's changes with graceful ease and serenity.
