"Metta during the Madness"
Metta now meets
Wednesdays 9 to 9:40am Pacific, 12 to 12:40pm Eastern
Backstory: 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 space to do contemplative practice, acknowledging the special uncertainties and high emotions that many of us were experiencing during that time, regardless of where our opinions might fall. The practice was so nourishing that we decided to continue the sessions. We now meet Wednesdays at 9am 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 generally goes: A basic Metta or Lovingkindness practice will be described for the first 5 minutes followed by silent practice until 25 minutes after the hour. Please have your mic muted during the meditation. The Zoom room will then stay open until 40 minutes after the hour for those who would like to commune or discuss (optional).
