In this course, you will learn how to integrate the wishes of loving-kindness into your body, heart and mind.
Loving-kindness, or maitri in Sanskrit, refers to cultivating a quality of friendliness and unconditional love towards ourselves. The practice integrates meditation, mantra and visualization techniques.
In this course you will explore the mantras:
- May I be free from enmity, anxiety and affliction.
- May I be happy.
- May I be healthy and strong.
- May I be safe.
- May I live with ease.
Learn what these words mean, and deepen their significance in your life by creating your own meanings drawn from personal experience.
Additionally, you will:
* Create a sacred practice space in your home
* Use meditation as the visualization technique
* Create artwork to be used as a visual reminder
* Gain community/connection with one another
Meditation and Dharma practices are ancient guidelines for living practices. Sharing our personal experiences enriches the value of these teachings as we learn from each other.
I look forward to our study together. May we all learn to love ourselves, and from that foundation spread love into the world.
