Six Thursday evenings
This course will emphasise aspects of the loving kindness meditation. The course will also go into more general mindfulness and how to work more deeply in meditation. But it would focus on the integrating, calming and wisdom aspects of the metta bhavana (loving kindness) meditation.
When we first learn to meditate, we inevitably bring with us expectations about what we think might happen. Maybe we want to stop habitual thinking, or simply be less stressed out. Maybe we think it will make us a better person, or at least a bit nicer. But at some point, we realise that to take the practice further we’re going to have to drop our expectations and step more fully into the unknown.
