Finding Joy and Peace in Challenging Times A Weekend of Mindfulness and Loving-Kindness

For all levels.

Mindfulness invites you to find the peace that is always available when you say yes to the present moment. Loving-kindness is a quality of open-heartedness that you can cultivate to help you dissolve fear and live with joy.

With warmth, humor, stories, poetry, and guided meditations, Hugh Byrne brings the wisdom and compassion of Buddhist teachings to help you live fully in the midst of life’s joys and sorrows. In this program, you

  • Learn or deepen practices of mindfulness and loving-kindness
  • Cultivate attitudes of kindness, acceptance, and curiosity toward yourself, others, and life
  • Deepen your intention and capacity to live consciously in alignment with your aspirations.

In these challenging times, mindfulness and loving-kindness serve as antidotes to worry, distraction, and unhealthy responses to stress.
