IDP offers its events on a sliding scale basis so that everyone can attend, regardless of financial means. This requires that you pay the highest rate you can reasonably afford. If you are a Monthly Member, we suggest you select the middle rate. Scholarship information is available at the bottom of this page.

Research indicates that Lovingkindness Meditation offers many benefits including an increased sense of well-being, relief from illness and pain, greater connectedness with self and others, and decreased stress.  This daylong workshop is designed for experienced meditators and meditation instructors to begin offering lovingkindness meditation to their clients, patients, and family.

The workshop will include:

  • Discussion of the foundations of this traditional practice, including source materials and explanation of its philosophical and psychological framework.  

  • Information on the contemporary research available, and recommendations for ways to incorporate lovingkindness in different settings.

  • Step-by-Step instructions and guidance on lovingkindness meditation.

  • Experiential and interactive lovingkindness meditation and practice teaching.  

Participants must have a regular meditation practice for at least one year.   Chairs and cushions will be provided. 

Kimberly Brown is IDP's Executive Director and also a teacher and a graduate of the 2011 Meditation Teacher Training.  She leads mindfulness and compassion classes, workshops, and retreats for groups and individuals.  Kim studies American and Tibetan Buddhism and practices lovingkindness meditation.  Her teaching methods integrate depth psychology, compassion training, and traditional Buddhist techniques as a means to help everyone reconnect to their inherent clarity and openness. Discover more about Kim and her teaching at her website.
