"Metta during the Madness"
Metta practice on Zoom will be offered weekly, on Wednesdays.
New time: 9 a.m. Pacific (12 p.m. Eastern)
How this got started: During the US presidential election period starting November 3rd, 2020, I began hosting a meeting place for Lovingkindness or Metta meditation. The purpose was to create a non-denominational, safe place to do contemplative practice, acknowledging the special uncertainties and high emotions that many of us were experiencing during that time. The practice was so nourishing that we decided to continue the sessions. We now meet Wednesdays at 9 am Pacific/12 pm Eastern, unless otherwise noted here. (Occasionally, for holidays or personal scheduling reasons, there will be no meeting.)
All are welcome, regardless of affiliations. No experience needed. No fee, no sign-up. Just come whenever it serves your needs.
How it goes: A basic Metta or Lovingkindness practice will be described from 9:00 to 9:05 (Pacific) followed by silent practice from 9:05 to 9:25. The Zoom room will stay open until 9:40 for those who would like to commune or discuss. Please have your mic muted during the meditation.
