Mettā Program starts tomorrow
This coming week, we’ll be experimenting with a new program: a “soft” or “working” retreat. Basically, this means we’ll be practicing together in the morning and evening, and developing a theme through the week. Morning session is at 6am-7am, and evening session is at 7-8pm. We’ll go Monday to Friday, with the extra session on Wednesday night including a chance for discussion. They will be on Zoom and recorded to the Innovative Dhamma YouTube channel.
The theme is Mettā, or Goodwill. Many of us already know about the benefits of practicing Mettā but there are so many good contemplations for its development, it can really pay off to set some time aside to just focus on it.
Mettā is most beneficial when we manage to take it with us off the cushion and into the rest of our daily lives. If you have the chance, come join the Zoom session or integrate the one-hour recordings into your day and see if it helps remind you to open your heart at the right moment.
