This class is offered free to the community as a gift from the instructor, Chris, and from Breathe.
Loving Kindness (or "Metta") meditation is a form of meditation which cultivates loving kindness first towards the self, then towards those close to us, then out further to those who cause us difficulty and finally to all sentient beings. While Loving Kindness meditation began as a Buddhist practice (and continues to be a popular form), it is fundamentally non-denominational, and is appropriate for anyone wishing to add a compassionate mindfulness to their spiritual development.
The Sunday class will center on Loving Kindness practice, but will also include some other forms. All Sunday meditation sessions are open to all and suitable for beginners. Chris, the instructor, will guide the meditation.
There will be a small number of cushions, mats or chairs available, but many people like to bring their own cushion to sit on to ensure their comfort.
Recommended: We recommend Yoga, TaiJi, Qigong, walking or cardio classes, because it is quite difficult to calm the mind when the body hurts or is in physical discomfort.
