Living Kindness Daylong at A Positive Light

September 22 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Living Kindness on the Path of Life and Recovery: Buddhist Teachings for a Troubled World

Lovingkindness, 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 extremely valuable to see how the Buddha addressed these relevant topics:
• the challenges of living with other people;
• the risk of hating anyone, even your enemies;
• and the dangers inherent to conventional loving relationships.

The Buddha’s teachings on lovingkindness emphasize the importance of sila, or ethical behavior, the potential for opening into deeper meditative states of peace and equanimity, and the importance of developing a non-discriminating, unconditional love on the path of awakening.

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