7pm "Meditation and Me" with Lynne Patterson

 
New Monthly Class! Topics change each month. 
 
March 6th
 
I wish you wellness. I wish you love. I wish you happiness. I wish you peace.
 
These phases will be used this month when our Meditation and Me program explores the practice of Loving-Kindness Meditation. This practice focuses on the heartfelt wish for the well-being of oneself and others. It lets us practice opening our hearts to generate empathy and compassion for everyone.
 
*************
 
Loving-kindness meditation brings harmony into our relationships and as we practice, we find that we have fewer conflicts and deeper connections with those we love. The practice of loving-kindness meditation allows us to overcome anger, resentment, and hurt while we develop an attitude of peacefulness based on feelings of consideration and forgiveness for others. By focusing on positive qualities, we teach ourselves to see the good and put all people on equal footing.
 
The session begins with a short meditation which will focus on what you are feeling as loving-kindness meditation deliberately stirs our emotions.
 
After a discussion of the loving-kindness method and determining our focus, we will practice a complete loving-kindness meditation followed by a 10-minute silent meditation.
 
We meditate while sitting chairs and ask that you feel free to bring your meditation pillow, blankets, or bench as sitting on the floor is always an option.
 
If you can breathe, you can meditate!
 
Monkeys always welcomed!
 
Love Offering
