A 2-day Insight Meditation Retreat on "Metta Infused Mindfulness: Interweaving a quality of kindness into meditation"
Saturday 9am to 4pm and Sunday 9am to 3:30pm
Many contemporary practitioners have discovered that interweaving a quality of kindness or metta into their meditation can bring a softening that allows their practice to deepen. The Buddha specifically noted the benefits of including a variety of such heart qualities into practice. In this weekend retreat we will gather to explore this metta (kindness) infused mindfulness in a way that is relevant to your formal meditation practice and your life.
We will explore this theme in noble silence through sitting and walking practice. Experiential meditative approaches will be offered throughout the retreat, supported by optional discussion times. This retreat is designed for both beginners and experienced practitioners.

Our landscaping fundraising campaign is off to a great start! So far we have raised $2,140 and have about $2000 more to go! Work on the project is starting this month. The parkway along D Street is going to have a major facelift with pavers and shrubs and irrigation. The Sangha can really use your help! Please give what you can. There will be a donation box in the Sangha House kitchen specifically for this project so please drop a check or cash when you are next at the house. You can also use Paypal. Just note in the memo that the donation is for the landscaping project. Many many thanks!
