Lovingkindness Meditation (LKM), is the practice of wishing oneself and others happiness, health, and ease. Based on traditional Buddhist teachings, LKM has become an increasingly popular practice, as it generates both concentration and a deep understanding of the nature of our connection to ourselves and others. Cultivating compassion and patience towards our experience enables us to build equanimity and courage through the constant and inevitable changing circumstances of life.
Each week will include guided LKM, an exploration of the principles which support this practice, as well as time for discussion and questions. No meditation experience is necessary. Chairs will be provided.
Lovingkindness is an English translation of the Pali word, Metta, and August is Metta Month at IDP. Please join us in practice everyday from wherever you are.
