Metta is the word for friendship or lovingkindness in Pali, the language of the original Buddhist teachings. It is taught as a meditation that cultivates our natural capacity for an open and loving heart. Metta is traditionally offered along with meditations that enrich compassion, joy in the happiness of others, and equanimity. These practices lead to the development of concentration, fearlessness, and genuine happiness. Sharon Salzberg will introduce these teachings and support us in our own experience and cultivation of these qualities through direct instruction and guided meditation using classical techniques in a modern idiom.

There will also be many opportunities for questions. This workshop is suitable for both new and experienced meditators.

Fee: €390 (Concession: €300) includes lunches and evening meals, beginning with lunch on Saturday 13th and ending with lunch on Saturday 20 April.
