BELOVED FRIENDS, SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY

Join renowned teachers Sharon Salzberg and Stephen Cope for an online weekend of loving-kindness practice (metta meditation) and yoga. Has there ever been a time that we’ve needed it more?  

The Buddhist and yoga traditions both hold that it is possible to systematically cultivate feelings of loving-kindness, or what yoga philosophy refers to as “friendliness toward all beings.” These two great traditions each developed practices designed to promote the experiences of inner balance, happiness, and equanimity, as well as compassion (karuna) and sympathetic joy (mudita). 

Experience on-the-mat yoga practice and sitting meditation that foster loving-kindness, along with an understanding of the importance of metta and yoga in the overall vision of the contemplative traditions. Sharon and Stephen, long-time friends, cultivate a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, welcoming people at all levels of yoga and meditation experience, including beginners.
