Meditation as an Act of Love

When we develop meditation as loving awareness, we cultivate a beautiful way of living that supports wisdom and balance. We pay attention well to what we love and we learn to be present with a warm, open gaze for whatever shows up. This kind, gentle awareness brings mindfulness and metta (lovingkindness) practice together as one. We can learn about the truth of the way things are and learn to bear life's difficulties with grace.

We will be practicing meditation from the Buddhist tradition in silence together through mindful sitting, walking,eating, and listening. Practice will be supported by guided meditations, Dharma talks, and time for practice questions with the teacher. You will be asked to let go of reading, writing, and technology for the weekend to learn to listen well to the heart.




Anushka Fernandopulle is a lifelong spiritual practitioner who has trained for over 25 years in the Theravada tradition in the U.S., India and Sri Lanka and teaches retreats and workshops around the country. Anushka also works as a leadership coach and management consultant, influenced by a BA in anthropology and religion from Harvard University and an MBA from the Yale School of Management. Anushka is on the Spirit Rock Teacher's Council and leads a weekly group in San Francisco, Monday Night Dharma. Her teaching is informed by nature, creative arts, political engagement, innovation and modern urban life.
