Full Moon Loving-Kindness Meditation
|September 8, 2014|
|7:00 pm||to||9:00 pm|
Heart of Wisdom Zen Temple
All are welcome to our monthly Full Moon Loving-Kindness Practice and Ceremony for Ethical Living. To support loving-kindness (metta) around the world, we meditate together on nights when there is a full moon. Metta meditation is an antidote to fear and anxiety, and a complement to the cool clarity of wisdom. The Ceremony of Ethical Living is an opportunity to own and forgive our mistakes of the past, and to reaffirm our intentions to live in harmony with our deepest truth.
Our evening will begin with the Ceremony of Ethical Living at 7:00 pm to settle our past unskillful actions. After the ceremony (at about 7:30 pm) we’ll have a guided period of metta meditation, followed by walking meditation and a period of silent metta. We’ll finish the evening by chanting the Metta Sutta, which are the Buddha’s instructions on metta.
We have “tea time” after meditation.
The event is free.
