Loving Kindness for the Holidays

Saturday, December 18, 2021 - 9:30 am to 12:30 pm

With Matthew Daniell

The Dalai Lama said that “love is a not a luxury, but a necessity,” yet in our hearts we often do not feel love for ourselves or others and we bear the painful consequences.  In this workshop, we will explore time tested Buddhist practices which tap the power of intention through offering phrases of loving kindness (metta) to ourselves and others. When cultivated, loving kindness practice helps us to heal our own hearts by loving ourselves more deeply.  It can also help us touch those in our lives and the world with a deeper sense of love and connection.  Touching love for ourselves and others can be especially helpful during the holiday season with all of its inherent stresses. All are welcome.
