What we're about

The Metta Center of St. Petersburg is a resource for seekers and scholars, artists and creatives, students and teachers, mystics and philosophers, activists and advocates. We are a community classroom and wellness space, featuring three unique teaching and treatment rooms. Host your next meeting, performance, workshop, training, retreat, consultation or healing session with us.

“Metta” means “loving-kindness” in Pali, a language native to India (and the sacred language of Buddhism).

In ship-building, the “meta-center” is defined as the point of intersection between the center of a buoyant object and the center of that object when tilted, “which must be above the center of gravity to ensure stability.”

The Metta Center provides a space for us to orient and right ourselves as we navigate the Kosmos. Because love is what makes the difference from where we are to where we need to be.

Want to teach a class or host your event at the Metta Center? Fill out the application.
