with Andrew Warr, Anne Sheehan and Derek Corr
Saturday 11 February, 7pm to Saturday 18 February, 1pm

Content

  • Ways to evoke the natural love we all have within us
  • Learning to be our own best friend
  • What does it mean to have love for those we have difficulty with
  • Providing an effective methodology in the form of Loving kindness meditation
  • Moving toward a universal love while also treasuring our near and dear ones
  • Showing how this meditation can be transformative in our daily life even in the most mundane or challenging situations

When our hearts and minds are filled with love we naturally experience happiness and well-being, yet many of us feel a poverty of love, which we may experience as either feeling unloved or not being able to love others as fully as we would wish.

Loving Kindness meditation is a method that helps us to develop unconditional love, starting with developing a healthy and loving relationship with ourselves and then extending out into all our relationships and ultimately to all beings.

“I found all elements hugely beneficial. I have truly gained so much during this week that I now feel I will be able to use the teachings and practices in my everyday life. I found the silence beautiful and it allowed my mind to settle and become present. This has been the best investment I could have given myself. I gained something from every moment and encounter that I had here.” Siobhan
