Event description

Description

This is a five night residential mediation retreat with Adrianne Ross and Heather Martin. It runs from May 13th, 2019 to May 18th, 2019.


The beautiful qualities of metta (lovingkindness) and karuna (compassion) are essential for our own well being and for the world. Although they are innate within us, we often lose touch and our hearts become overwhelmed or closed.

Through the practice of metta and compassion meditation, we can reawaken and develop these boundless qualities so we can live with greater friendliness and kindness to all of life.

There will be guided meditations, sitting and walking practice and group discussions.
