About the Session

Love is a mutual dance that takes place, and even if you step on each other’s toes during the dance, it is not regarded as problematic or an insult.

– Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Do you want to learn more about the Buddha’s teachings on love and loving kindness? Do you want to study Buddhism and read a “sutra” (ancient text of teachings taught by the Buddha) in community? In this session, we will explore the Buddha’s teachings in the “Metta Sutra,” which is about love as a time-tested path to awakening and genuine compassion.

This Session Offers:

  • An opportunity to explore the Buddha’s teachings on developing goodwill, fellowship, benevolence, non-violence and friendliness towards one’s self and others
  • Introduction to sutra study
  • Loving-Kindness practice and meditation instruction
  • An opportunity to practice meditation from comfort of your own home or practice space
  • Community discussion with Q&A
  • Connection with other meditation practitioners on a path of love and compassion

What You Need:

  • An open heart and mind
  • A journal
  • Mala beads (optional)

Recommended Reading Material (not required):

Note: The instructors will screen share the Metta Sutra. We will not be chanting the sutra–reading only
