Practicing Metta as Receptive Non-Hatred
A DAYLONG RETREAT WITH ERIN TREAT
Saturday, March 30 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
During this daylong retreat, we will explore how practicing with a receptive form of metta (loving-kindness) allows us to cultivate a heart of goodwill and non-hatred. With this quality of receptive non-hatred, we open more easily to embodied experience and become able to investigate directly the nature of our experience rather than push it away. This in turn allows us to respond to the challenges we face both internally and externally in a way that brings forth natural resilience and deepening ease.
The day will include sitting and walking meditation as well as dharma reflection, inquiry, and guided meditations. This retreat is suitable for beginning and experienced practitioners. We wholeheartedly welcome people of all identities to participate.
COST: The cost of the retreat is on a sliding scale of $25-$45. Scholarships are readily available. You may choose to pay $12 or $0 through our online system. If you wish to pay another amount, please contact Terry Leonard at firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-799-0084. We invite you to pay at the highest level you can afford so that all who seek the teachings may participate.
Registration fees support the Durango Dharma Center. This retreat is offered on the basis of dana, a practice of mutual generosity that has been alive since the time of the Buddha. At the end of the retreat there will be an opportunity to offer a donation to Erin Treat.
