Living Kindness: Buddhist Teachings for a Troubled World

Loving-kindness, or metta, is sometimes depicted as a simple “open your heart and love everybody” practice, but a closer look at the Buddha’s teachings reveals a more complex and nuanced picture. In a time of great conflict and contention in our society, it can be valuable to instead look at how the Buddha addressed living kindness.

Several early Buddhist suttas illuminate these topics:
• Practicing non-ill-will toward difficult people
• Acting with integrity, morality, and ethics
• Living a harmonious homelife
• Letting go of grief
• Developing mindfulness and concentration through metta practice

The retreat will include meditation, lecture, small group discussion, and Q&A.
