The Buddha once said, “We can look the whole world over and find no one more deserving of our love and kindness than ourselves.”
Metta (loving-kindness) practice protects the mind from falling into habitual patterns of reactivity that undermine our sincerest intentions to be happy. Also referred to as a mind-liberating practice, Metta can awaken powerful healing energies that brighten and lift the mind to increasing levels of joy and clarity. Our greatest and most challenging task on the spiritual path is to learn to love and accept ourselves in every moment. Self-hatred, inner aggression and self-criticism are rooted in a mind that is confused and suffering. When we really love and honor ourselves there are no more questions.
This is an excellent event for people of color who feel energetically stuck in the past and are unable to break free and move forward. In this session, and the accompanying weekend retreat, Spring Washam will focus on Metta practice, self-compassion and forgiveness in order to let go.
