Online Weekly Metta Meditation with Ian Challis and Friends

October 28, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 5:15 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:30 pm on Friday, repeating until April 26, 2024

When the Buddha’s followers felt anxious and afraid, he taught them the practice of metta or lovingkindness meditation. Metta is a form of practice that helps us touch deeply into our own hearts, uncover the energies of kindness and compassion, and share these energies for the benefit of all beings.  

If you would like to explore this powerful practice, please join Ian Challis and friends online. These 45-minute meetings will be practice-focused, with most of the time spent in meditation. If you are new to the practice, great! We will learn by doing. After practice, there will be time for questions and sharing.

Cost: Donation basis; there is no charge to participate. Our center and teachers are supported by your generosity. Please give from your ability and heart.

Please subscribe to our mailing list for instructions on joining this online event.
