Weekend Meditation Retreat on Metta with Ayya Vimala from Tilorien Monastery (Belgium)

Saturday, October 27th - Sunday, October 28th, 2018

More details about the retreat will be confirmed at a later date.

‘As a mother would give her life
to protect her only child,
So with a boundless heart
should one cherish all living beings.’

Metta is the unconditional loving-kindness that reaches out to encompass all beings. In metta meditation, we learn to be free from the shackles of selfishness that constrict our emotional capacity. This practical, step-by-step approach goes beyond mere words into a direct experience of boundless, universal love.
