About The Event
Facilitated by Meg Lucks
This retreat is limited to 10 participants.
RETREAT TO BE HELD LOCALLY AT THE SHALOM HOUSE IN WEST BEND, WI
Open to any and all of our community members
Description: Mettā, or lovingkindness, practice is the cultivation of the intention of benevolence as the orientation of our heart and mind. It is also a path to wisdom. We develop our capacity for mettā through meditation (which is practiced steadfastly on retreat) in order for it to manifest in an ongoing way in our daily lives. In this retreat, we will learn the formal practice of mettā along with its companion practices of compassion, joy, and equanimity. All four of these practices – known as the Brahma Viharas/ Divine Abodes – strengthen self-confidence, self-acceptance, and steadiness of mind and heart, revealing our fundamental disposition toward kindness.
