"Awakening the Radiant Heart" — Metta Practice with David Bornstein

  • Pima Friends Meeting House 931 N. Fifth Avenue Tucson, AZ 85705 (map)
We are, by nature, endowed with qualities of absolute goodness—purest love, compassion, wisdom, and tranquility. Those radiant qualities are intrinsic to our being.
— Lama John Makransky

Metta or Loving-Kindness meditation is an essential part of the Buddhist path. In our practice, we often emphasize cultivating mindfulness, which is very important. Equally important is cultivating a loving heart. The gentle and flexible Buddhist practice of Metta trains our hearts to radiate friendliness and well-wishing to ourselves, and to all beings.

During this daylong, IMT teacher David Bornstein will lead the traditional practice of Metta, while also allowing space to customize the practice so that it resonates with you.
