Love is in the Air – A Mini Mindfulness Series

Love is in the Air – A Mini Mindfulness Series


These meditation sessions invite you to expand and clarify your definition of “love” by examining the concept of “metta”. Sometimes referred to as “loving kindness”, metta has been interpreted in some communities as “Love that is strength and gives strength.” The first session will focus on the meaning of “metta” and describes how metta is different from “sympathy” or “empathy”. The second session focuses on using metta to explore our loving relationships without being hampered by worldly conditions that may hinder our ability to love in a wise and compassionate way. Each session offers an informational talk on metta followed by a short meditation session on metta.
