Personal and Boundless Loving Kindness

November 18, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm PST

Daylong with Amma Thanasati

Loving kindness has personal and boundless facets. When we cultivate it
personally, we bring loving kindness directly to our body, emotions, mind
states and relationships. Knowing unconditioned love is an access point to
let go of a solid self-nature. When we do that we let go of boundaries that
keep us feeling separate. Our fears that we will lose our personal love
relationships release. We stop believing the stories we tell ourselves about
who and what we are. The myths that we are undeserving and essentially
unlovable fall away. In this openness, the heart natural response is to feel
and let love in.
The program will focus on the following:
▪ Establishing refuge in what is timeless, pervasive and ever-present
▪ Establishing integrity as container for meditation and daily life
▪ Relaxing your body
▪ Generating loving kindness
▪ Accessing pervasive awareness/love
▪ Making good use of supportive community
▪ Daily life applications
Suitable for new and experienced meditators.
