Fall 2019 Class: Cultivating a Boundless Heart: A Deep Dive into Loving Kindness, with Gary Sanders (8 Wks + Opt. Day-Long Retreat)

In this time of divisiveness, taking sides, and creating enemies, we all have the potential to find peace and ease within, to recognize our interconnection to all other beings, and to embrace them all with acceptance and friendliness. It is the practice of Metta that enables this to become our reality, to cut through our conditioning and decades of comparison, judgement and resentment.
