Brahma Vihara - Metta (Loving-kindness)

with Whispering Deer

The practice of loving-kindness cultivates an openness of heart – a heart that is not afraid and one that does demand any particular result. It encourages the heart to remain open rather than to shut down in the face of pain and suffering – to remain at ease under all conditions. Loving-kindness cultivates a sense of good heartedness towards ourselves which then radiates outward engendering generosity and care for others happiness and well-being. Come and join us in experiencing a love that has no preference and is unbound.

Donation welcome.

About Whispering Deer

Meditation is my primary spiritual practice. Each year, I spend 8 weeks in silence, working with various meditation techniques, accessing deep states of consciousness and expanded awareness. This work has led me to experience the transformative power of the awakened heart, resulting in the development of the Brahma Vihara workshops. The benefits I have received are innumerable and immeasurable. Nothing would please me more than to share what I have learned with others.
