This Sunday April 14th I'll be talking about "Going Beyond Love for Ourselves, the Larger Context of Metta."
Two weeks ago I talked about "Acceptance as the Essence of Love" and laid out some of the foundations of metta (lovingkindness) practice, particularly for oneself. This Sunday I'll be exploring the larger context of metta, both in terms of those to whom metta is directed, and in terms of how metta operates in the mind and heart to diminish aversion, greed and delusion. When these difficult mind states lessen, suffering eases and we find that there is a natural upwelling of joy and peace.
Please come on Sunday night and bring your friends. Looking forward to practicing together with you.
