Metta: As the Heart Breaks Open

with DaeJa Napier

May 22, 2021

Register for this At Home Retreat >

Pain is the cracking of the shell that encloses our understanding.
~
Kahlil Gibran

The practice of metta helps us to see through the cracks of the breaking heart with loving awareness. When cultivated, metta relaxes the grip of fear of the unknown, while opening new pathways to the center of the heart, where happiness and sorrow live in harmony with one another. As a result, a sense of balance emerges supporting a growing capacity to remain present and responsive to eight worldly winds of change that blow throughout our lives.

This In-home Retreat offers an opportunity to merge the experience of formal retreat practice with everyday living.

Guardians of the Heart:

Insight Meditation & the Sublime Abodes

with DaeJa Napier

Oct 2-9, 2021

Learn More About This Retreat >

”If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.” Buddha

Through the practice of Insight Meditation (vipassana), we begin to see deeply into the miracle of our own human mind and body process, As a result, our whole life begins to change in ways that guide our responses to ourselves and others with increasing insight and love.

The four sublime states (brahma-viharas) are natural expressions of an awakening heart. They are loving-kindness (metta), compassion (karuna), appreciative-joy (mudita) and equanimity (upekkha). These mind and heart liberating teachings, attitudes and practices function as guardians and protectors – while supporting the greater good in each moment.

As antidotes to fear (anxiety), aversion (judgment and ill-will) and clinging (attachment) – they bring increasing balance, ease, trust and fluidity to the way we respond to the “ten thousand joys and ten thousand sorrows” that come and go throughout this precious existence.
