EF Headquarters in Irvington

Sunday, December 18, 2016

 

Metta is the word for friendship or lovingkindness in Pali, the language of the original Buddhist teachings. It is taught as a meditation that cultivates our natural capacity for an open and loving heart. With its roots in practices said to be taught by the Buddha himself, metta is traditionally offered along with meditations that enrich compassion, joy in the happiness of others and equanimity. These practices lead to the development of concentration, fearlessness, happiness and a greater ability to love.

Sharon will introduce these teachings and support us in our own experience and cultivation of these qualities through direct instruction and guided meditation using classical techniques in a modern idiom. There will also be opportunities for questions.

Special Program with Visiting Teacher John Tarrant Roshi

  • Eileen Fisher Headquarters

Join us at EF Headquarters on Thursday, September 15th from 7 - 9 PM for an evening of teachings and exploration with John Tarrant Roshi.  Sometimes it seems that we are in a frightening time, sometimes it seems that we are in a time of transformation, sometimes it’s just confusing. People are going to want to hate each other in the coming months, and it’s good not to believe that we have to hate someone. We can’t control uncertainty but we can befriend it and it will be on our side. Help comes from unexpected places.
