Compassion Training Meditation Weekend

Friday 7-9 pm, Saturday 10-6 pm, Sunday 10-1:30 pm


Compassion and lovingkindness are inherent qualities of every human being, and they can be developed and cultivated through practice and training. Each and every person can learn to be more compassionate, kinder, and more patient - it just takes effort. Transform your relationship to yourself, your family, your community, and your world by learning Metta and Tonglen; contemplative techniques designed to exercise the heart and open the mind.

IDP Weekend retreats are a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in the practices and teachings of the Buddhist tradition in the support of a group environment. The focus for this retreat is the Buddha's original teaching on Metta meditation and the Tibetan practice of Tonglen, and will include talks and practice instruction, in-depth meditation, short yoga breaks, and discussion.

This practice-based retreat will take place Friday evening 7-9pm, Saturday 10am-6pm, and Sunday 10am-1:30pm, leaving students with ample time to relax and integrate the practice on Sunday afternoon.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are unable to attend the entire weekend, you may enroll for portions of it. Contact [masked] for registration details.

There will be lunch breaks on Saturday and Sunday, but lunch will not be provided. Participants should bring a bag lunch or take advantage of the diverse eateries available in the neighborhood.
