Metta Retreat, 2020
This retreat is focused on the practice of loving friendliness. Traditionally, metta is cultivated along with compassion, sympathetic joy (rejoicing in the happiness of others) and equanimity. Through these practices we develop a loving heart, concentration, self-acceptance, fearlessness and happiness. These practices also establish our fundamental connectedness to all life. All retreats are considered silent retreats with the exception of Dhamma talks, question and answer periods including optional teacher interviews.
On-site registration/check-in opens at 3:00 p.m. in the Dining Hall. Please arrive to allow enough time to complete registration here and settle in before the retreat begins. All retreats end after lunch on the last day.
Although every retreat is slightly different here is some additional information that we hope will be helpful: typical retreat daily schedule, mealtime practice, and the FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions.
