The “Four Heavenly Qualities” are Buddhist teachings which can offer us ways to be with ourselves and others with mindfulness and ease.

Metta, or maitri, is the first of these qualities. Often translated as “lovingkindness,” “goodwill” or “unconditional friendliness,” these qualities are practiced through guided meditations to helps us to access this heart-mind state when we most need it.

This half-day is mostly a meditation retreat. Brief teachings on metta will be presented before alternating periods of seated and walking meditations. Plan for an easeful practice day to activate and bring forth goodwill for ourselves and others.
