The 'sublime abidings' - metta or loving-kindness, mudita or sympathetic joy, karuna or compassion, and upekkha or equanimity - are a series of profound meditation practices that help us integrate and refine our emotional experience. Practicing and dwelling in these positive states enables us to see through our narrow self-clinging, thus giving rise to the bodhichitta, or wisdom heart.
'Not influenced by any subjective considerations of like and dislike, you are seeing all beings equally, without that subjective distortion, and therefore, at least to some extent, you are seeing them as they really are.' Sangharakshita.
Open to Mitras with a regular meditation practice and Order members only.
Please contact the Guest Master (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you haven’t been on an intensive meditation retreat before.
The retreat starts with dinner on the first day at 6:30pm and finishes on the final day at 10.00am.
