"Metta during the Madness"
Metta practice on Zoom will be occurring on Monday and Friday mornings
at 8:00 am Pacific, 11:00 am Eastern.
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 have experienced during this time. The practice was so nourishing that we decided to continue the sessions. We meet Mondays and Fridays at 8 am Pacific/11 am 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 for any or all of the days--whatever serves your needs.
How it goes: A basic Metta or Lovingkindness practice will be described from 11:00 to 11:05 (EST) followed by silent practice from 11:05 to 11:25. The Zoom room will stay open until 11:40 for those who would like to commune or discuss. Please have your mic muted during the meditation.
