Drawing on the early teachings of the Buddha, we will explore the practices of mindfulness and concentration that help to build a solid foundation for insights to arise and that free the heart of its constricting patterns. Emphasis will be placed on the four qualities of loving kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity and how they lead to greater openness, receptivity and acceptance of the way things are.
Participants are encouraged to attend all of the teachings offered this weekend; however, Friday evening may be attended as a single event.
Everyone is welcome as this retreat is suitable for new and experienced meditators alike.
