Description:
"The difference between misery and happiness depends on what we do with our attention."

~Sharon Salzberg

Loving Kindness is a meditation practice that cultivates good will and friendliness to all beings everywhere, including our selves. It is a healing practice when we are angry or fearful and an antidote to negative emotions. The practice of Loving Kindness trains the heart to open, to let go of fear and resentment, and to be kinder and less judgmental.

Loving Kindness is based on our hearts' natural desire to be happy and to share this happiness with others.

This class will include seated meditation, instruction, and group discussion.
