A Day of Lovingkindness

A Daylong with Melissa McKay

Saturday, July 22, 2017

9:30am – 4:00pm 



Metta, or Lovingkindness, is a practice that the Buddha taught over 2600 years ago. This heart practice is intended to help us soften towards ourselves and towards all beings. However it’s not so easy to do and we often run into difficulties. In this day of practice and dharma, Melissa will investigate what the teachings of metta mean for us today and how to cultivate this important practice in our own lives.

There will be sitting and walking meditation and dharma talks. Come spend a day investigating this practice of kindness for yourself and others.

COST: $35-$75 sliding scale, plus an offering of dana to the teacher. Please pay at the highest level you can afford to support our programs and pay it forward for those who have less. Scholarships and work-study are available. No one turned away for lack of funds.
