Atlanta Mindfulness Institute and the Atlanta Insight Meditation Community Spring 2022 Metta Retreat
Cultivating a Life of Lovingkindness
In the Pali language, Metta means unconditional friendliness or lovingkindness.
During this Metta Retreat we will come together to create a container of lovingkindness as we immerse ourselves in the practices of this boundless home of the heart. We will focus on different forms of Metta practice and we will contemplate the interplay of metta with the other divine abodes of the heart: compassion, joy, and equanimity,
From Friday evening through midday Sunday, we will enter into Noble Silence as we alternate periods of sitting and walking meditation. Held in the beautiful natural surroundings of Elohee, we will aspire to cultivate within and around us a sense of stillness and open-heartedness.
During the retreat, Dhamma talks along with periods of instruction and opportunity for Q&A will be offered by teachers Stephanie Swann & Susan Reviere. Optional meetings with the teachers will be made available as well.
If you have never done metta practice, this is a beautiful introduction. If metta is already a part of your practice, taking several days to commit solely to your practice can deepen and strengthen your experience of open heartedness.
