The Brahmaviharas - An Intensive Meditation Retreat
- From the 3rd to the 10th of September -
The Brahmaviharas - Metta (loving-kindness), Mudita (sympathetic joy), Karuna (compassion), and Upekkha (equanimity) - are a series of profound meditation practices that encourage us to be honest about our real feelings and attitudes towards people while also giving us a taste of the sublime emotions of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.
Sangarakshita calls metta the emotion which is in harmony with reality. Metta is thus the emotional equivalent of Insight.
This meditation retreat will include teaching sessions, discussion, meditations, puja and personal meditation reviews with a member of the team and will be an opportunity to explore all of the vast dimensions of positive emotion and take the practice of the metta bhavana far deeper.
This intensive meditation retreat is open to men who have been on retreat within Triratna and have an established and regular meditation practice
