An introduction to meditations which offer gentle yet powerful tools to open our hearts and minds, to connect with the immeasurable treasury of love within us and to develop empathy and kindness far beyond conventional limitations.

It is a timeless spiritual truth that we all have an immeasurable treasury of love within us.

2,500 years ago the Buddha taught his disciples the meditations on Loving Kindness as a way to reconnect with that inner wealth. In modern times these meditations still provide gentle yet powerful tools for opening our hearts and minds.

Loving kindness is a practice which has proved tremendously helpful, both to those who are already experienced in other forms of meditation and those who are completely new to meditation.

This Bank Holiday weekend event will provide you the tools to establish Loving Kindness as a source of nourishment and well-being in your life and to integrate the practice meaningfully into your everyday reality.

“It was lovely to be able to join this retreat although not being present in Ireland. I was surprised at how connected I felt to each and everyone of the participants and how strong the whole experience could be even if done through a screen.” .
